After two decades of filming weddings Doug had long wondered what became of those couples.. Are they still together? Is married life what they thought it would be? How have they navigated the inevitable ups and downs of marriage over the long haul? Driven by deep curiosity to answer these questions, he begins to track down and interview his wedding couples, juxtaposing wedding day flashbacks with present-day reality as he explores themes of love and marital commitment and to ask them all the same question: After years of being married, what would be your advice be for a young couple soon to be married?Written by
I think the idea, the core concept to take all this footage and turn it into a doc was pretty good but ultimately Block's editing doesn't elevate the material. The sum is not greater than its parts. It's a mishmash of old wedding footage and more or less not very compelling interviews. We spent precious little time on the weddings themselves so the effect was diluted and ultimately we weren't invested in any one story. Block got some people to talk about their marriage HE also didn't manage to get too much out of his subject so as a viewer we feel we are watching a very self censored interview. This is really the challenge of shooting a doc without a script...and it's obvious Block had no script.
