"Beautifully modulated! Full of both the ache and the joy of real life."
– Jon Frosch, The Hollywood Reporter
"Funny as hell! Helena From The Wedding boasts a strong ensemble cast...piercing humor...[and] a bittersweet sting that brings a smile to our faces and a lump in our throats."
– Cullen Gallagher, Hammer to Nail
"The acting performances are all perfect...It is a brutally realistic depiction of the trials and tribulations of 30-something couples and their friendships."
– Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

Synopsis

In this nuanced and comedic portrait of marriage, newlyweds Alex (Lee Tergesen) and Alice (Melanie Lynskey) host a New Year's Eve party for their closest friends at their remote cabin in the mountains. However, when Alice's friend brings along a surprise guest—the very young and beautiful Helena (Gillian Jacobs)—the group's facades begin to crumble.

ARRANGED
Directed by Diane Crespo and Stefan Schaefer
YEAR 5 FILM 12
Rochel is an Orthodox Jew, and Nasira a Muslim of Syrian origin. They are both beautiful young teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. They also have something else in common - they are going through the process of getting "arranged marriages" through their respective religious and traditional customs. With both family pressure on the one hand, and the rejection of traditional values by the outside world on the other, Rochel and Nasira will have to rely on each other and their friendship to pull through this difficult time of their lives, striving to be strong women in charge of their own happiness, while keeping their deep religious and cultural convictions.

2 AUTUMNS, 3 WINTERS
Directed by Sébastien Betbeder
YEAR 12 FILM 1
Arman is 33 and ready to make a change, starting with a run in the park. When he literally bumps into Amélie - slightly cynical but nevertheless lovely - on the jogging path, he's dead-set on making a connection with her. As a bit of contrived fate brings them together, Arman's best friend Benjamin suffers an unexpected stroke, relegating him to the hospital for weeks where he falls for his doting young physical therapist. Over the course of two autumns and three winters, Arman, Amélie and Benjamin share the incidental moments, unexpected accidents, unconventional love stories and unforgettable memories that will define who they are.

Jeff in Seattle - Customer Review
I felt like I was watching "gossip" in this film. So, a married man gets his "love" to his wife tested when a young single female arrives in a cabin full of married couples (each couple with issues of their own).
