Lesbian Love Almost Actually

Let me say – with much hope and a full gay agenda –just because it’s Christmas – and at Christmas you tell the truth – to me, “Love Actually” would have been much more perfect if it had kept its original lesbian subplot. Alas, my wasted heart will pine for it until I go watch “Carol” again and remember we don’t need table scraps from the cutting room floor to sustain us anymore. We have full, glorious, Technicolor stories that luxuriate in our love, not push us aside for the hetero leads. Merry Christmas Eve, lesbians. I hope “Carol” opens so very soon in a theater near you.

p.s. My full review is still coming, I promise.
p.p.s. Is telling the truth at Christmas a U.K. thing? Because Americans certainly do not have any traditions around truthfulness and Christmas – quite the opposite. Oh, yes, Aunt Martha, I loved the socks you knitted me.

Hey, if the video is blocked in your country, go here:

Grab the link from the embedded vid, paste it in the box on unblockyoutube, and presto, you can watch it.

Yeah, that would have been so much better than the stalky Walking Dead guy or the dating naked people...
Sigh...
Merry Xmas DS

Quite literally just finished this on Netflix. (Mine is packed, moving the day after christmas.) This is a Christmas time must watch for me. Along with Prancer. All these years and I'd never knew this was a deleted scene Ms. Snarker. Thank you for making this movie even better for me!!

What a poignant scene. It's a shame it was left out.
In fact it would have been a treat if ALL of Love Actually's love story plots and sub-plots had lesbian.
I'm dying to see "Carol". THANK YOU for all of your reviews!
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and fantastic year 2016

I've never heard of the telling the truth at Christmas thing before, and I'm British.
