Richard's Wedding2012

  • 3.4
  • passes the bechdel test
RICHARD'S WEDDING is an irreverent, often politically incorrect and ultimately touching film that plumbs the depths of friendship and marriage. The film follows Tuna and long time friend, Alex, on their quest to go to Richard's wedding in Central Park. The duo meet up with their motley assortment of old friends only to revive old jealousies and debates on politics, religion and the meaning of success, as the whole party runs the risk of going off the rails in a downpour of rain and emotions. This re-tooling of the wedding-movie genre recalls classic ensemble films from the 1970's with a slew of New York indie-film talent, including writer/director Onur Tukel (SEPTIEN), Jennifer Prediger (UNCLE KENT), Oona Mekas (THE FUTURE), Darrill Rosen, Josephine Decker (ART HISTORY), Lawrence Michael Levine (GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY) and Dustin Guy Defa (director of BAD FEVER).

"Onur Tukel’s uncompromising comedy almost feels like a live event, equal parts narrative feature and 'happening.' Think HUSBANDS AND WIVES-era Woody Allen directing reality TV and you’re in the ballpark." - Zach Clark, Hammer to Nail

Richard's Wedding has a lot to say. It's filled to the brim with dialogue, and the varying New York locations serve as textural pieces as the two main characters make their way to their friend's wedding. At times I had to stop watching and go do something else, simply because I could no longer pay attention to what the characters were talking about. While slightly heart-warming, Richard's Wedding is an "authentic" study of the beliefs and relationships a varied group of friends can have with each other.

Onur Tukel's movie's concept is nothing new, but it is well written with a great ensemble who has the talent to make it all sound real.

Jennifer Prediger is the particularly strong standout of the film. This is nothing amazing, but it offers more than a few fun moments.
