Rachel Getting Married


Director: Jonathan Demme

Writer: Jenny Lumet

Stars: Sebastian StanAnne Hathaway,  Rosemarie DeWitt

I had never enjoyed a single performance by Anne Hathaway until now, of course Rosemarie is a strong actor and brings a lot to the film as well. I would have to say that it is the filmmaker who deserves most of the credit for the beautiful intensity of this drama which centers around Rachel , who has just gotten out of rehab and her family. It is an immensely powerful film that provoked an unwelcome reaction on my part as I cried for 3/4 of it. It’s one of those films where you forget you are watching a film and get pulled into Rachel’s mind as you live her story through her eyes in congruence with the staggering grief of her father and desperation and frustration of her sister. I am sure that I don’t have the eloquence to articulate just how intense the film really is. If your brave enough to view it then grab a box of Kleenex and be prepared to endure a brilliant drama from the director of The Silence of the Lambs ,The Manchurian Candidate and Philadelphia.

6 out of 10. (it lost points or making me cry).
