Movie Talk

If your image of Anne Hathaway is still that of a cute ingénue, then you'll be shocked by her blistering performance as a wayward junkie emerging from rehab to attend her sister's wedding in Jonathan Demme's documentary-style family drama

It's a common tale told like we've never heard it before. It's the melodrama Robert Altman never got to make. It's wonderful.

Like a family reunion with its share of embarrassing moments, it may be worth attending all the same.

Like being forced to sit through an overly long wedding video in the living room of a couple you hardly even know.

August 1, 2009

Kym crashes through her family and the weekend, careening off real and imaginary obstacles with a fierce yet still sympathetic rancor. It's the home movie you hope never to see of your life, impeccably filled with color and on-set live music and life and

Only those who are willing to forego the many imperfections in the loosey-goosey script and Demme's improvisational style will feel the acting makes the film worth seeing.

By the time the Ganesha cake is cut, you're left with the poodle as the only family member worthy of empathy.

The messiness that goes with genuinely flawed and complex people is what makes the film ring so true and cut so deep.

This isn't the kind of melodrama where a happy facade is slowly torn away-the tensions are there from the start and no one has illusions that things are nice and rosy.

The only real surprise is that someone doesn't break into "Burning Down the House" at the rehearsal dinner.

Apollo Guide

Jonathan Demme has struck a brilliant balance here, delivering a film that looks, sounds and feels painfully honest, while making it entertaining as well as deeply truthful.

Laramie Movie Scope

The screenplay is fairly standard and even has a few cracks in it, but this film does have exceptional performances. Those performances lift this film above mediocrity.

Cinema em Cena

Consegue estabelecer, através do recorte de apenas um fim-de-semana na vida de seus personagens, um retrato profundamente complexo e tocante das relações entre os integrantes de uma família marcada pela tragédia.

Those who surrender to Demme's disarming, almost participatory technique will find themselves overwhelmed, exhilarated and inspired by the eternal possibilities of cinema.
