A powerful family drama that's one of the best from 2008. Anne Hathaway is stunning; she completely deserved her Oscar nomination.

Anne Hathaway puts on an acting clinic here. The film's pedestrian style and almost documentary style way of shooting dramatic scenes makes it raw, emotionally arresting, and one of the best movies of 2008.

Rachel Getting Married

Let me start by saying that Anne Hathaway annoys me like no other. And by no other I mean everyone excluding Keira Knightley and Renee Zelweger. Her bumbly doe-eyed stuttery girl-next-doorishness makes me want to cut a babies' legs off.

BUT....she was really fantastic in this. I don't know how she did it, but she should do it all the time.

This movie is more than your average dysfunctional family indie flick. It's not Margot at the Wedding or The Squid and the Whale or Little Miss Sunshine. It doesn't try to be cute or quirky or indie. Instead, it is artistic and tragic and real. Lengthy scenes of the married couple getting toasts and the dancing at the wedding reception place you into another world. It is less of a movie and more of an experience, like you are getting to live anot...

Hathaway Rocks It Out

First thing's first. Hathaway was a brilliant recovering drug addict. She is really evolving as an actress. I think this was a great role for her. She shows her versatility and is just amazing. The thing that makes this movie great is the pure realism of it all. In the scene where they are all that the rehearsal dinner I actually had to get up and walk away while Hathaway started giving her speech. Not because it was bad, but because I was so embarrassed for her character. The characters were incredibly realistic. You can almost feel like you know them, or maybe you even know people like them. I was surprised how I was able to stay interested in this movie when it really seemed like it was a home video of a wedding. But the actors embraced their roles so well that I couldn't really take m...

Didn't End Quite as Strongly

It’s definitely refreshing to see Anne Hathaway play a sarcastic and narcissistic character because I’m so used to seeing her as sugary and sweet like in “The Princess Diaries,” “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Ella Enchanted.” Although she’s had her share of darker characters such as in “Havoc,” it’s in this film that she truly shines and showcases her potential as a serious actress capable of carrying roles that have a certain resonance. Although the backdrop of the film is Rosemarie Dewitt’s wedding (as Rachel), the film is really about Hathaway’s inner demons as she tries to recover from addiction to drugs (and negative self-talk regarding herself, the world and the future). I must give kudos to the director (Jonathan Demme) and the writer (Jenny Lumet) for their sublime way of telling th...
