Movie Info

This propulsive, globetrotting thriller from acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom is a breathless tour through the shadowy underworlds and hidden realms of Pakistan and India. Jay is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding - armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. Despite his cool efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi - as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets are revealed. Pulsating with the sights and sounds of the Indian subcontinent, The Wedding Guest conjures a colorful world where danger lurks at every turn and nothing is as it seems.

Critic Reviews for The Wedding Guest

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

The director's original screenplay feels like a rough draft and the characters' attitudes are almost constantly sour.

Each next turn is so thoroughly telegraphed that it wasn't until the end that it dawned on me I was supposed to be wondering if one of the leads was playing the other and, if so, which one.

Although "The Wedding Guest" is every bit the breezy way to spend a spend a Saturday afternoon as you might think at first glance, it's because it's not what you think it'll be that makes it so satisfying.

a superbly crafted mystery with terrific performances. Winterbottom is a versatile director.

Despite Winterbottom's excellent direction, Nuttgens' photography, and the decent acting from the two leads, the core nuts and bolts of the story fail. "The Wedding Guest" disappoints because its mundane screenplay.

It's told with a no-frills efficiency which, although it wastes little time with story padding, does manage to create a vividly present sense of place.
