EP. 401.5 — Love Actually (re-release)

Unspooled will return with new episodes 1/13 – be sure to catch up with “Jeanne Dielman” before we kick off Jeanne-uary, until then enjoy one of our favorite holiday episodes!

 

Paul & Amy cross the pond for 2003’s Christmas romantic comedy smash Love Actually! They dissect director Richard Curtis’s curious understanding of love, learn the fates of each character in the 2017 sequel short, and watch deleted scenes that would have introduced even more plots into the film. Plus: Lindy West discusses her essay “Shit Actually” that kicked off a critical re-evaluation of this movie.
