Rachel Getting Married isproduced by Demme, Neda Armian (Jimmy Carter Man From Plains), Ilona Herzberg (Evan Almighty, The Manchurian Candidate) and Mark E. Platt (Legally Blonde).
When Kym (Anne Hathaway - Academy Award and Golden Globe Nominee, Best Actress), returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt), she brings a long history of personal crises, family conflict and tragedy along with her. The wedding couple’s abundant party of friends and relatives has gathered for a joyful weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym – with her biting one-liners and flair for bombshell drama – is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that remain a hallmark of Jonathan Demme’s films, Rachel Getting Married paints a heartfelt, perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait.
