HELENA FROM THE WEDDING
"Beautifully modulated! Full of both the ache and the joy of real life."
– 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."
– 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."
– Smells Like Screen Spirit,
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 guestâ€”the very young and beautiful Helena (Gillian Jacobs)â€”the group's facades begin to crumble.
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).
