Audience Reviews for Rachel Getting Married

  • Aug 05, 2012
    Strong performances with Anne Hathaway coming out on top. The hand-held camera gives a lot of freedom to Jonathan Demme and his cinematographer, making the entire film surprisingly dynamic. It's also very well-written by Sidney Lumet's daughter, everything is revealed in the right time, and once again Demme does a pretty amazing job directing, as everything and everyone seem so natural. Solid family drama.

    You'd better be in a good mood when you see this; it is very much of a downward spiral. Beautiful example of ensemble acting. The family interaction is so real you lose yourself in their dysfunctional drama. Of course the star of the show is Anne Hathaway. I'm not big on movies about addiction and recovering addicts, but Hathaway has gone so deeply into the psyche of her character that you'd think she herself had lived through the experience. Without a doubt, this is Hathaway's best performance so far. I've never seen her so fully inhabit a character. Props too to Bill Irwin, the father who cares too blindly and, guiltily, too much.

    Prime display of familial dysfunction and the tangency needed between its members, Rachel Getting Married is bolstered by the strong performances of its leading lady and it's under-recognized supporting cast. A home-video-esque camera may frustrate some, but actually helps to emphasize the film's voyeuristic perspective, creating a truly genuine viewing experience.

    The story of what would be every recovering drug addict's worse nightmare...confronting the ongoing struggle of sobriety. Kym comes home in time to spend some time with her family fresh out of rehab. Her sister is getting married and her coming to grips with the folks that she has hurt while she was battling her addiction...is quite a time for her to pick to apologize and make amends on the wrongs she has done during what is supposed to be her sister's happiest time of her life...a very good drama..worth seeing.
