This is one of those films that is tricky to judge in the conventional sense because it's clear from an early stage that it will divide opinion and that the viewer needs to pay a little more attention than normal in order to get the best out of it. Personally I liked it, I liked it for its sense of spontaneity and the feeling that large parts of the dialogue were ad-libbed which gave it a sense of authenticity. And while I was prepared to be irritated by the hand-held camera movements, I quickly forgot about it and decided that it was a positive contributing benefit to the film as a visual story, that it was the right thing to do. It was well acted, well directed (by Jonathan Demme) and it was easy to engage with Kym and Rachel, to share their sometimes raw and pent-up feelings and to care for the family as a whole. The bottom line is that it can be an entertaining film to watch, it's just not a lazy watch and unless you watch and listen closely you might easily drift away and stop caring about anybody in it.
The music plays a significant part in the sense of atmosphere. Director Demme took what I believe to be the unusual decision to have the musicians play their mostly stringed instruments while the scenes were being shot; they were told in advance what was going to happen in each scene and played tunes to suit those scenarios.Read more ›
Well acted film I really enjoyed. Def worth buying, and I will watch again.
Nice to see anne hathaway in this type of role.
The film was 'real' family drama based around a wedding.
I connected completely with the characters...not many films can do that.
with good reason, as it turns out.
the wonderfully layered story of the relatioship between the 2 sisters and their (now divorced) parents is completely drowned out it the multi-culti messiness of this 'alternative' wedding.
Kym (Hathaway) is the 'bad' sister with a gigantic chip on her shoulder and her older sister Rachel (the bride) is too preoccupied with herself and her ancient grudges against her freak of a sister to be able to feel or attend to her needs.
then there is the over protective father who always hovers and the conspicuously absent mother - who joins the film much later ( a great Debra Winger, wonderful to see her again!) and has her guilt and unforgivingness to deal with.
unfortunately the tension which builds up very nicely in parts is then sacrificed in favour of overlong and totally irrelevant wedding speeches, or by showing extra long and extra close up shots of the carneval of wedding guests when dancing.
at that stage the film becomes a farce, i wondered if it was a showcase for some up and coming actors. very annoying.
one sighs with relief when the camera return to the wonderfully present and gripping face of Ann Hathaway.
so - without all the sidetracking action and the boring string of 'colourful' guests it would have been a good film. as it is - because of the marvelous leads- it's still worth watching.
oh, and before i forget - beware of the aweful music! it really gets on your nerves.

Nicely acted and filmed (jerky camerawork- grrr) but not enough to keep you enthralled I'm afraid.
Very depressing too- nothing there to lift the story.
