    Love actually

    I am trying to summarize the plot of the movie " Love Actually", but I am not sure if the following sentences sound ok.

    1. The movies starts with the situation that is five weeks before Christmas.

    2. There are many different couples(??): the prime minister and his secretay; the ( or a) writer and his houemaid; the just married couple and his friend; a British guy and the (?? ) founr American girls.
    ( Is the puntuation right??. Also, do I have to add " the " or " a"??)

    3. The main message( or theme) of this movie is that love is an essential part of our lives.

    Re: Love actually

    Maybe such is better.

    1. The movies starts with the episode which happened five weeks before Christmas.

    2. There are many different pairs: the prime minister and his secretary; a writer and his housemaid; a newly married couple and their friend; a British guy and four American girls.


    3. The main idea of this movie is that love is an essential part of our lives.

    Cheers! H.S.

    2. There are many different couples(??): the Prime Minister and his secretay; the ( or a) writer and his houemaid; the just married [newly married is the usual phrase] couple and his friend [ does this mean a husband, his wife AND his friend?]; a British guy and the (?? ) founr American girls. [you would need "the" if there were a specific group of girls; no article if it is just four girls]
    ( Is the punctuation right??. Also, do I have to add " the " or " a"??)

    3. The main message( or theme) of this movie is that love is an essential part of our lives.
    I'm sure some of these errors are typos, but anyway - all errors marked in red.

    I thought the Prime Minister's girl was the girl who brought round the tea?
