Group dynamics in the modern American family is Jonathan
Demme’s focus in Rachel Getting Married. Rachel’s sister Kym (Anne
Hathaway), the absentee black sheep, returns to the Buchman family home,
bringing with her the fallout of dysfunction that, among other things, her drug
addiction has brought her to, and so is the recriminating and killjoy cat among
the festive pigeons for the wedding weekend. It’s no surprise that Demme’s
mentor is Robert Altman, and that master director’s trademarks-large ensemble
cast, overlapping dialogue, rich characterisation-are played out to a similarly
convincing effect. The vitality and intensity of the multicultural interplay
are captured brilliantly in the collisions the get-together implies. ‘Both
deceptively modest and deeply resonant’ (New York Daily News). ‘A mess’ (Time).
By the time you see this film, you will know whether Hathaway, hotly tipped for
Oscar glory, was a Best Actress winner.
