"Rachel Getting Married" Luke's Rating: 8 of 10 Rotten Tomatoes: 84% ? Metacritic: 82% As I was watching this film, I was trying to put my finger on what made it so familiar. It didn't take long to realize it had an extraordinary similarity to Trey Edward Shuts' Krisha. Now I see that Shults was indeed influenced by this extremely raw depiction of family directed by Jonathan Demme. Anne Hathaway stars as Kym, a recovering drug addict who is attempting to not only reunite with her family, but also bury her demons. What prompts this reunion is that Kym's sister Rachel is, as the title states, getting married. Join the chaos, as Kym attempts to relive the happy times, while also trying to not get lost while Rachel has the spotlight. Hathaway absolutely kills it, and it is perfect, because there are no other big name actors to steal the show from. Add Demme's shaky cam style of direction that almost feels like a home movie, and you are totally immersed into this family, and their problems. I will however say that this film was a little long. There were a lot of scenes that just seemed to linger, but perhaps were necessary to provide levity to the extremely dark script. At the end of the day your family might wrong you every which way, but they are family. There is something about that which makes you love them forever. #GuertlerGuarantee #2008 #JonathanDemme #JennyLumet #AnneHathaway #RosemarieDewitt #BillIrwin #DebraWinger #TundeAdebimpe #MatherZickel #SonyPicturesClassic #Drama
