Second thoughts on wedding day
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Andrea's wedding day, and in the last-minute bustle before the service, something happens to make Andrea her and think about whether to go through with it.

Everything about this movie makes us care that she will wind up making the right decision, and the movie is so well done, we feel the same ambiguity and indecision that she feels. We're taken through her recent past, and we learn that she loved someone else very deeply who was taken from her. On wedding day, as it happens, someone turns up who reminds her, painfully, of the man she lost.

The characterizations and acting are wonderful. The sets and cinematography are top notch. The plot is filled with touches that are both romantic and taken from real life. It's all so beautifully done, one hopes many people will get the chance to see this film.
