Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I watch Love Actually. (Which, as of late, has been more often.)
The 2003 film interweaves relationship tales including a washed up singer making a pop comeback, a young boy's first love, and a prime minister who falls for a household employee — and all of them together make for a two-hour experience that's packed with humor, heart, and holiday spirit. The film's star power — Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Emma Thompson, and Alan Rickman — doesn't hurt either.
The short film, appropriately titled Red Nose Day Actually given its origins, has already aired in the U.K., where Red Nose Day was on March 24. It will premiere in the U.S. this Thursday, May 25, for our own version of the campaign. You can watch it during NBC's Red Nose Day fundraiser, from 10 to 11 p.m..
