This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Easily falls under the only-need-to-see-it-once category. Obviously the point but Rachel Getting Married is an incredibly awkward and uncomfortable watch with a ton of superfluous filler rife with pretentiousness. I kept praying Hathaway's character would relapse into an OD even if I didn't mind Jonathan Demme's visual style. (Yes, put the damn camera down.) A decent watch but not very engaging.
debra winger wipes the floor with every fucking cast member in all of, what, ten minutes of screen time? she's phenomenal. anne is very good but i hope her next baity role calls for a little more restraint.
So I kind of was able to respect Hathaway here as she proved herself as a decent actor, however all her later films has just shown how awful she is. Maybe it was just the direction of Jonathan Demme, I don't know. I think it's a superior film anyway and deserves a 5-star. Big ups for Tunde Adebimpe as well!
havent seen quite brilliant & realistic drama in quite long time. IT pulls you in emotionally. Everything in it combined magnificently; directing, acting, writing, music, camera angles, resulting an amazing movie that sure is worth to watch.
I actually have to admit that I was kind of disappointed with this film. I have seen many other film makers do - what was done in this film; better. It's hard to really put it - and I'm not critic - but I feel like the movie didn't meet my expectations.
