Rachel Getting Married

No feel good movie, this one.

And yet, superbly emotive.

Anne Hathaway fascinates as Kym, the 9 month sober addict, released from rehab in order to attend her sister Rachel's wedding.

The film takes us along as a severely wounded family tries to reconnect during the whirlwind of pre-nuptial and nuptial celebrations.

Poignant and affecting, the movie avoids ever becoming too painful to watch.

This sounds intriguing and probably cathartic.
