Rachel Getting Married
Perhaps the most real thing about this film is that this is a family that struggles. They fight over things in the past both big and small and they are trying to come to terms with how to exist as a family now. It is real, it is unique and it is so well crafted that you forget you are watching fiction.
I pity the people that go into Rachel Getting Married and Revolutionary Road thinking that they are films that will be light hearted and romantic in the end; the people that go in expecting that will miss the true relevance and brilliance of these films.
Kym: I am Shiva the destroyer, your harbinger of doom this evening.
