The Film: Christmas time in England, the characters are falling in love, falling out of love, some are with the right people, some are with the wrong people, some are looking to have an affair, some are in a period of mourning; a capsule summary of reality. Love begins and love ends. They flirt a lot. They are all flirting with love. In fact it's all about love...actually!
The Score: Craig Armstrong - not only is he a talented Scottish musician and composer who won a Grammy Award for his film score for Ray, but he used to be a face in the Scottish pop music scene as a member of Hipsway and Texas!
