Helena From The Wedding Reviews
December 13, 2013
Not much of a plot, but in the end, it made me feel good. Relationships are not always what they appear.

Lots of potential, but ultimately boring and too full of goody-goody characters. Movie would have been better and more believable if Helena had actually bedded one of the weekenders. Also unbelievable is that the husband who was suspected of cheating (wife found condoms in his briefcase) was actually a victim of a prank. In real life people sometimes (perhaps often) cheat on their spouses. Was this movie aimed at adults or adolescents?

Good capture of 30-something anxieties and frustrations, that could have easily been a stage play, with eight characters holed up in a cabin for New Years Eve. I'd recommend it, except the ending was a bit unfulfilling.
Bonus: Kiwi Melanie Lynskey still good as ever.
