Love Actually Movie Summary

Love Actually is a massive ensemble film with seemingly disconnected stories that are later revealed to be tied together by the holiday season, and well, love actually.

The film begins with aging musician Billy Mack attempting to make a comeback, guided by his loyal manager Joe. Billy has redone the song “Love Is All Around” into “Christmas Is All Around”. Billy spends the film taking the slings and arrows from critics for making such an obvious money grab, before his little song becomes the Christmas number one single, propelling him back into the limelight.

But Billy has learned something from this humbling experience. He has learned that Joe is longest relationship he has ever had, and that he loves the man. In a non-homosexual way of course, but Billy ends the film by foregoing a party at Elton John’s house to get drunk with Joe at his flat on Christmas Eve.
