Film Review: ‘Jenny’s Wedding’

13 July 2015 12:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Solid performances and decent intentions are all on the guest list for “Jenny’s Wedding,” a sweetly played yet overly on-the-nose dramedy about a lesbian who finally comes out to her sheltered Cleveland family after deciding to marry her longtime partner. Katherine Heigl brings both ferocity and vulnerability to the role of a favored child discovering the courage to be herself in front of her parents and siblings, but while the fine cast teases out glimmers of nuance here and there, Mary Agnes Donoghue’s film plays like a series of hand-holding growth exercises for closed-minded conservatives, and relies too heavily on its tying-the-knot finale for both dramatic momentum and emotional closure. A name-y cast and fortuitously topical timing will ensure some audience exposure for this July 31 IFC release.

Keeping your characters in the dark for too long while tipping off the audience too early can be a risky strategy, »
