Critic Reviews for The Wedding

  • The film's lack of originality goes beyond its title as it tediously imitates fixed-camera observational indie dramas while privileging dialogue that plays like uninspired improvisation.

  • The Wedding is rooted in potentially rich ingredients, but Abbas shoots it in such a flat, minor-key register that most of the dramatic energy dissipates.

  • This could've, more should've, been a darling of a film in a climate willingly to welcome it with open arms. But, this dreamlike love story plays out more like a forgettable daydream.

    December 19, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Refreshingly nuanced, understated and unHollywood with exquisite cinematography and set design, but it ultimately leaves you cold and underwhelmed.

    December 14, 2018 | Rating: 6.75/10 | Full Review…
  • Films like "The Wedding," written and directed by Sam Abbas, often get overlooked because they are made on a shoestring with an unknown cast. But this auspicious feature debut by the Egyptian-American Abbas demands attention. It's a gem.
