Love, Actually

After 28 years of wedded bliss, John Reilly really needed something special to commemorate his wife Carol’s 55th birthday. But what hadn’t he done for her before?

This loving husband will describe his odyssey to persuade Buckingham Palace, Jodi Picoult, singers, famous folks, family and friends to help him with a unique project. The result was a very special 20-minute film of greetings, notes, songs and serenades that showed the whole world just how wonderful Carol was.

It’s not just a long birthday greeting - its LOVE, actually…

Free and open to all dreamers, romantics and those who would like to know how John pulled off this one-of-a-kind valentine!
