Love Actually/Notting Hill/Bridget Jones's Diary/Bridget Jones - [DVD]
Collection of romantic comedies. In 'Love Actually' (2003) eight stories involving the love lives of more than a dozen characters are brought together over one Christmas and climax on Christmas Eve; from the recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), the failing marriage of Karen (Emma Thompson) and Harry (Alan Rickman), through to the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) falling for a member of Number 10's staff (Martine McCutcheon). In 'Notting Hill' (1999) Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) is a world famous movie star, whilst divorcee William Thacker (Grant) owns an ailing travel bookstore in his local neighbourhood of Notting Hill. One day Anna buys a book from William's shop and later collides messily with him on a street corner. She accompanies him home to clean herself up, and from there springs an unlikely romance. However, the path of true love is littered with obstacles, not least with the media, the adoring fans and the differences in their lifestyles. In 'Bridget Jones'S Diary' (2001) we are introduced to Bridget (Renee Zellweger), the 1990s British everywoman: single, weight-obsessed, and very probably drunk on mid-price white wine. Her life goes from middling to worse when she embarks on a doomed affair with silver-tongued boss Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). In the background lurks a literal Mr Darcy (Colin Firth), a seemingly cold lawyer who keeps crossing Bridget's path but whose precise intentions seem hard for her to define. All the while Bridget records her lurches across life's highway in the eponymous diary, as an attempt to take control of her tragi-comic life. In 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason' (2004), having finally found the perfect man in gorgeous lawyer Mark Darcy, 30-something ex-singleton Bridget Jones is now faced with the even bigger challenge of keeping him. When her self-doubts return and her womanising ex-lover Daniel Cleaver reappears uninvited, Bridget gets entangled in a comic mix of bad advice, miscommunications and total disasters that could only happen to her. Finally, 'Wimbledon' (2004) follows the journey of a washed-up tennis player who scores a wildcard entry to the Wimbledon championship and finds his game reinvigorated after he meets one of the top American female stars. Peter Colt (Paul Bettany), a once-great British player, is sliding further down the world ranking every year. Once ranked eleventh in the world, he is now placed at 113th and it seems as if his career has come to an inglorious end. Winning a wildcard entry to the Wimbledon tournament seems like Peter's last chance, although when he accidentally stumbles into the hotel room of Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst), a rising star in the women's game, he finds his luck beginning to change. Even though he is warned off Lizzie by her father Dennis (Sam Neill), the more he falls for her, the more his game improves, until it seems as if he might just have a chance at the title.
