Father of the Bride

Father of the Bride

Steve Martin is brilliant alongside his iconic castmate Diane Keaton in the remake of the 1950 film of the same name, Father of the Bride, portraying George, a business owner from the small California town of San Marino. He loses his cool when his “little girl,” 22-year-old Annie (Kimberly Williams), returns home from Europe with shocking news about her engagement to a 26-year-old freelancer from Bel Air. This heartwarming comedy is punctuated by genuine moments of everyday life and ultimately presents the beauty found in “letting go.”
