THE WILDE WEDDING (2017): The Thing I Liked…

The Wilde Wedding, the Damian Harris written and directed movie about a retired actress who remarries for the fourth time had me feeling a tad disinterested immediately. Reason being, I found that I didn’t connect with the narrator at the beginning. I also felt that there were too many characters, none of whom proved particularly interesting.

For me, this film just plodded along and I continued watching in hopes that things would improve. Especially considering the main cast  – John Malkovich, Patrick Stewart and Glenn Close.

I’m glad to say that things did get interesting and more dramatic somewhere past the halfway point. And I certainly didn’t anticipate the way it ended. However,  is it enough for this to be a movie worth recommending? Not really. It’s Complicated (2009) is more fun, in my opinion.

The thing that stood out most for me overall about this movie actually has nothing to do with the story, but rather the truth about one of the actors. I’m speaking of Australian actor Yael Stone, a.k.a. Lorna Morello from Orange Is The New Black. The lady is a wonderful actor especially in Orange Is The New Black and she’s clearly gifted with accents, for in this movie her character is convincingly British.

THE WILDE WEDDING (2017): New Trailer From Glenn Close, Patrick Stewart, John Malkovich, Minnie Driver…

From writer / director Damian Harris, The Wilde Wedding is a new comedy about a retired actress who remarries for the fourth time, to a renowned english writer. Glenn Close, Patrick Stewart, John Malkovich and Minnie Driver star…

First of all, to anyone who didn’t recognise Sir Patrick Stewart with hair, what kind of movie fan are you? Jokes aside, I’ll be watching because the cast is great. There’s also the fact that this trailer looks good and reminds me so much of one of my favourites, It’s Complicated (2009).

Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Grace Van Patten and Noah Emmerich also make an appearance.
