New Zealander and much-loved romantic comedy director Richard Curtis is going to be present for a very special event at the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey this April. As part of their inaugural filmmaker Tribute event, Curtis will be in attendance for a daylong celebration of his life and works. Curtis will also provide live commentary for his now-classic rom-com “Love, Actually” alongside a screening of the film. That screening will be followed by a wide-ranging conversation with “Late Show” host and beloved comedian Stephen Colbert.
“I’m so delighted to be part of the Festival,” said Curtis of the news, “and excited to have a chance to be on stage with Stephen Colbert – and looking forward to undermining ‘Love, Actually’ with my scurrilous memories and revelations about the low quality of the film-making, and quite how many members of my own family are in it, including my mother-in-law.”
The screening and conversation will be held on April 30. Read more on the MFF website.
