Love Actually

loveactuallyRomantic and emotional. All of my favorite English actors in one movie. Rewatching the movie in 2015, I really appreciated what an amazing job Emma Thompson does in her role, especially when she has a mini-meltdown in the bedroom (set to Joni Mitchell's "Two Sides Now") and again when she confronts her husband (Alan Rickman) - when she asks him "should I stay or should I go?" the look on her face as she waits for his response is a powerful mix of anger and sadness.
