RACHEL GETTING MARRIED

bookmark
Thu 26 Feb 2009 1:00 AM

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.
