The Wedding Weekend from Hell
(Rom-Com, 91 minutes)

Forty-ish Alan (Michael Nathanson, The Wolf of Wall Street), a successful TV producer, invites his old college friends to a destination wedding and reunion in Palm Springs, where they meet Alan’s young, beautiful but shallow fiancée, Jennifer (Charlbi Dean Kriek, An Interview with God). The guests include a cynical attorney, the attorney’s ex-wife and her 20-year-old girlfriend, a pretentious and prurient blogger, a successful dentist, a gay couple, and Alan’s old college crush, Laura (Viva Bianca, Spartacus: War of the Damned), who is married to a successful but self-absorbed painter. The weekend starts innocently enough, but long-held secrets and buried passions are exposed when Alan and Laura get lost in the desert, and the other guests are left to themselves. Chaos, laughs and surprises ensue.
