The Big Wedding

The Big Wedding


Don and Ellie Griffin (Robert Di Niro and Diane Keaton) fell in love, got married, had children, fell out of love, and got divorced. Don married Ellie’s good friend Lyla (Katherine Heigl). The kids grew up. Everyone moved on with their lives. “The Big Wedding” starts out as a typical American story.

Now, years later, Don and Ellie’s adopted son Alejandro (Ben Barnes) is getting married. The plans for a big wedding are going well until Al drops a bomb on the family: his biological mother has decided to fly halfway across the world to attend the event. An ultra-conservative Catholic, she believes that divorce is a terrible sin. Which is why for the past 15 years Al has neglected to tell her that his parents are not only “heathens,” they’re also divorced.

What can they do? Al doesn’t want to disappoint his biological mother, who “gave up her only son in the hopes that he could have a better life.” The solution: for one weekend, Don and Ellie will pretend to be a happily married couple once again. Among all of their family and friends, the hoax snowballs into a poignant and raucously funny story as the Griffins are forced to confront their past, present and future.

Gone, a 2012 psychological thriller film, empowers that femme fatale character we all know who takes things into her own hands.  When a young woman must take the capture of a serial killer into her own hands, things take a turn for the worst as her friends, family, and her town refuse to believe her.

Jill Parish (Amanda Seyfried) has experienced something very few people live to tell the tale about; abduction.  Being the only survivor several years prior, the majority of her friends that were kidnapped were murdered in grisly fashion.   Being the sole survivor has been difficult as the death of her friends constantly haunt her.

But when signs start to suggest he’s still at bay, things get ugly when he makes a threat against not only her life, but her sisters.  Soon, her sister goes missing.  With no one around to believe her, she decides to take matters into her own hands.  Refusing to allow anyone to get in her way, she vows not to sleep until her sister’s kidnapper is dead.

Directed by Heitor Dhalia, Gone  is set to release at the end of February.  After all the Valentines Day charm has worn off and relationships take a downward spiral, you lovely ladies can take a quick trip to theaters and vicariously live out your fantasy of hunting your ex through Jill Parish and her manhunt narrative.  Either way, Gone looks to be a fun, witty female-driven action flick.
