This film tells the story of a woman who lives in a conservative town. After being with her girlfriend of five years, she decides to come out to her family and tell them she will be having a wedding.
It is refreshing to see the Katherine Heigl, the current queen of romantic comedy performing in a lesbian film. It is certainly a different kind of romantic comedy. I think it is a great film because it is a story of acceptance, equality and love. The scenes of Jenny coming out are really beautiful, she is courageous and strong to break out of her life of deceit. Her parents' subsequent journey to acceptance is very realistic and memorable as well. What's more great is that the whole film is upbeat and emanates positivity. I enjoy watching "Jenny's Wedding", and I think it could even be a preparatory film for people considering to come out to watch as well!
