Robert Altman, the award-winning director of M*A*S*H, and GOSFORD PARK, again assembles a stunning ensemble cast for this hilarious story of two very different families drawn together for love...and money.

Driven by a Golden Globe-nominated performance from Carol Burnett, and a remarkable turn by an understated Mia Farrow as the sister of the bride, A WEDDING is part comedy of manners, part social farce, as a society wedding deteriorates into inter-tribal chaos.

When the senile celebrant forgets the vows, an upper-crust marriage between Dino Corelli (Desi Arnaz Jr.) and Muffin Brenner (Amy Styker) gets off to a shaky start: but when the wealthy Corelli and Brenner families converge on the lavish wedding reception, revelations of drug addiction, mafia connections and infidelities - played out brilliantly within Altman's trademark zoom lenses - rise to a dramatic, shambolic conclusion. Following his hit NASHVILLE, Altman's riotous take on the institution of marriage was released in 1978 to great critical acclaim and remains a masterpiece of modern filmmaking.
