Anne Hathaway's role as a rehabilitating drug addict returning to her family home in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED is sure to give Kate Winslet a run for her money at the Oscars. Curzon presents a special preview of this awards' contender on Sunday 20 January at Mayfair at 12 noon.
When Kym (Hathaway) returns to her family for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie Dewitt), she brings a history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party’s cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but with her blackly-comic one-liners and knack for bombshell drama, Kym is a catalyst for simmering tensions within the family dynamic. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that have always been a hallmark of Jonathan Demme’s films, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED paints a strikingly perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait with wry affection and generosity of spirit.
