“Love Actually,” a Christmas love story at the Post

By Jim Reed/SMN

Now, as I mentioned in last week’s column, this Thursday night, Dec. 22, the historic Tybee Post Theater (just blocks from the beach on Tybee Island) offers up its latest installment in an ongoing series of well-known, romantic-themed features called “Girls Night Out at the Movies.” I’d be remiss if I did not point out that these films are quite suitable for folks other than those of the female persuasion. I should also note that admission to this series includes a complimentary glass of wine (if you’re old enough) and a small pack of facial tissue (as the Post management assumes you’ll shed a tear or two during the proceedings).

Their selection this time out is director Richard Curtis’ 2003 British rom-com “Love Actually,” which is set around the Christmas holidays and boasts a phenomenal ensemble cast (including Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley and Chiwetel Ejiofor). It’s a delightfully enchanting blend of bittersweet drama, awkward humor and heartwarming romantic vignettes that is mightily hard to resist. It’s a perennial favorite around this time of year on cable, but if that’s the only way you’ve ever caught it in the past, treat yourself to a big-screen display. Showtime is 7 p.m., with $10 admission (including that wine and Kleenex).
