Fall Movie Preview: Rachel Getting Married

Rachel Getting Married, directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Anne Hathaway and Rosemarie DeWitt, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this week. Not only has the film been receiving excellent reviews from critics, but several claim that this is Anne Hathaway’s breakout role.

The story centers on the Buchanan family, a wealthy Connecticut family, who are marrying off their eldest daughter daughter Rachel (DeWitt). Younger sister Kym (Hathaway) who has been a drug addict since she was teen has been granted a weekend pass from rehab to attend the nuptials. Kym’s presence at the event brings about a number of truths the Buchanans would prefer to keep secret.

Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly calls Anne Hathaway’s performance a revelation. “She shoots far beyond giving a damn about her “likability” in a performance as scalding as it is controlled. She makes toxic narcissism magnetic.”

Glierberman also calls Rachel Getting Married Jonanthan Demme’s best movie since Silence of the Lambs and praises the directors ability to make you feel like a member of the family. [read Owen Gleiberman’s entire preview]
