Movie Review: “Rachel Getting Married”


Starring: Anne Hathaway, Rosemarie DeWitt
Director: Jonathan Demm
Rachel Getting Married tells the story of Kym (Hathaway) – a girl who is given leave from rehab to see “Rachel getting married” – her sister Rachel, that is (DeWitt). Kym is self absorbed and petulant: a trait that Rachel cannot deal with, especially with their father indulging Kym in her childish behaviour. What ensues is awkward dinners, shouting matches and tense and touching moments showing how a whole family is affected by one addiction.
This movie is good. It is. We found it a very interesting unique, almost documentary like portrayal of a family, though we must admit it was at time self-indulgent and assumed the audience cared more about them then they probably did. Anne Hathaway was brilliant. Subtle and true, we forgot we were watching an actress. If you like you films with more of kick, stay away. But it’s worth checking out.

What did we learn from this movie?
All’s fair in love and dishwasher packing war.
