When Kym (Hathaway, Becoming Jane) returns home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (DeWitt), she brings a long history of personal crises and family conflict along with her. The wedding party's abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym - with her black-comic one-liners and knack for bombshell drama - is a catalyst for the emergence of long-simmering tensions in the family. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters this paints a strikingly perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait. Director Demme (Something Wild, Philadelphia) and the stellar acting ensemble leaven the drama with wry affection and generosity of spirit.
