        When KYM (Anne Hathaway) returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister RACHEL (Rosemarie Dewitt), she brings a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party's abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym - with her black-humor and knack for bombshell drama - is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic.

        Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that have always been a hallmark of Jonathan Demme's films, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED paints a strikingly perceptive family portrait. Director Demme, first-time writer Jenny Lumet, and the stellar acting ensemble leaven the drama of these difficult but compelling people with wry affection and generosity of spirit.
