Bill Nighy gives a great performance playing aging Rockstar, "Billy Mack" who recorded Christmas single designed to reunite his career. His relationship with his Manager, "Joe" played by Gregor Fisher is classic. Liam Neeson plays "Daniel" who loses his wife "Joanna" during Christmas. His relationship with his stepson, "Sam" played by Thomas Brodie-Sanger is wonderful and very touching.

One of Mom's favorite performances given by Hugh Grant, who played the "David" who was also the Prime Minister of England. His life takes a 360 when he meets one of his staff, "Natalie" played by Martine McCutcheon.
The film features an amazing cast tied into Richard Curtis's incredible story. Even though it is a modern movie it does not look dated.
