Multi-starrer Love Actually would have been just that save for that one Emma Thompson scene where she cries after realising that Alan Rickman’s character has been cheating on her.

We are back with the second edition of our #BreatheFree initiative which is about crafting…

Over the years, this single sequence has become one of the most defining moments of a relationship (or the breakdown of one) in pop culture. And for good reason.

The always fantastic Emma Thompson, who is more known for her comedic skills than she is for her dramatic performances, wowed one and all when she brought to life with incredible sensitivity and braveness the response of a woman whose trust has been broken irrevocably.

The four minutes long sequence, we see the former happy couple of Emma and Alan with their kids getting ready to open their Christmas gifts. As Alan finds out Emma’s present, she is hoping it is the golden necklace which she had seen her husband buying in the shop earlier. However, reality hits hard when the present turns out to be a Joni Mitchell CD instead. “To continue your emotional education,” the husband says as he sees her unravel the gift wrapping. Tears rolling down her eyes, she is holding them in for too long and soon enough we see Emma’s character make an excuse to move out of the room.

This part alone was emotional, but now the story moves forward. She has a little meltdown in the bedroom, Emma wipes her tears and fakes a smile to continue the festive revelries. She is a wife, and also a mother but does not want to let her children down. She can’t let them see her in this disastrous state and so she goes into the living room in a half dead.

Love Actually is presently streaming on Netflix.
