Storyline

In Rhode Island, in the Italian-American family Sposato, Danni is going to marry Geoffrey Brancato. Danni lives with her parents Santo and Irena and is the third and 'the good daughter' of her family. Her three sisters come for her wedding: the older Nikki, a successful TV starlet, who works in a TV show very similar to 'Baywatch'. Nikki brings her boy-friend and manager Marty Weinberg to be introduced to her family. Chrissy, who deals with investments in Wall Street; and the rebel younger Toni , who plays in a rock-and- roll band with her lesbian lover Amy Kayne. Together, they have meals in the restaurant of Tom Terranova, the former and first love of Nikki. Many discussions of the Sposato family show wounds not healed, when the characters expose their real feelings. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Kiss the Bride is a movie with great insight into family dynamics. I loved it!
11 June 2003 | by (Watertown, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Kiss the Bride is a special film because it is excellent on different levels. First, it's just fun to watch. The story immediately caught my interest and then managed to hold it without falter throughout the whole film. I had to know what was going to happen to each character. The side stories, interesting and honest family relationships, and personal struggles of each character gave this movie depth. By the end, I wanted to see another Vanessa Parise film about each member of the family.

On another plane, Kiss the Bride made me analyze human nature, families, and most of all the relationship between what we are as individuals and what we are as parts of a family. Each sister strives to achieve her personal goals while at the same time she works hard at eliciting a certain reaction from her family. The feelings and displays of anger, misunderstanding, frustration, fear, and ultimately love that this individual/family struggle call forth are so honest and true that many times I was deeply touched.

The gorgeous setting in the beach side town of Watch Hill, RI made this film even better. The costuming was perfectly done as well. It aided in the development of each sister's distinct personality right from the outset. The director captured the constant motion, energy, and culture of this Italian-American family with scenes of gorgeous meals, impromptu songs sung by family members, and emotionally heated discussions. All of these characteristics made the mood palpable.

I laughed a lot in this movie and shed some tears as well. The story and the characters were very real to me and I could relate my life as a thirty year old strongly to those of the sisters in Kiss the Bride. Vanessa Parise has a gift for bringing out those confusing and conflicted feelings we all have about ourselves and our loved ones.
