Storyline

Mother of the bride Isobel speaks direct to camera about her selfish Lesbian daughter Kelly's upcoming civil partnership. She recounts her husband Robert's disapproval - particularly of 'I Kissed a Girl' instead of the wedding march - but expresses her regard for Kelly's intended, the older, sensible Janice, to whom she relates very well. Possibly rather too well for the union to last beyond the big day in fact... Written by don @ minifie-1

Unfolds beautifully

I Love this film. It is done Talking Heads style and every bit as good

  • i am sure Alan Bennet would love it.


Alison Steadman is superb as the mother and narrator. So many family issues encountered in the run up to a wedding are all handled in what seems to be her own inimitable fashion. I wonder if the writer had Alison in mind when he envisaged Isobel.

The Lesbian issues are thoughtfully and sensitively portrayed. It is beautiful, sad, funny, and I didn't see what was coming. It's a great upbeat ending - just when it seems all is lost, there's the dance scene
  • this is gorgeous - as is Deborah Cornelius in this scene. This is all
topped off with a quirky twist at the end - perfect !
