Wry, richly-layered, wonderfully-observed, and potently-funny Argentine film about a self-absorbed man who agrees to help his father with a crazy scheme: a church wedding for his parents after 44 years of marriage. Featuring touching performances by international stars Ricardo Darin and Norma Aleandro, Son Of The Bride illuminates a young man’s transformation from hard-driving, hard-hearted son to gentle charmer.
