- 1 hr 54 min
While the titular character is Rachel, this drama is really the story of Kym (Anne Hathaway), a prodigal daughter who is back in town for her sister's (Rosemarie DeWitt) wedding after several stints in drug rehab. The film, directed by Jonathan Demme, was lauded for its realistic portrayal of a family in crisis. As the wedding day approaches, the tension between the sisters, as well as the rest of the family members, is palpable. Eventually, they are forced to face a terrible secret about Kym's past that affects the entire family, even as the wedding guests remain within the home. The film was one of the standouts of 2008, with Hathaway nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award. The movie was also nominated for six Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Feature, and appeared on the year-end top ten list of over 20 major critics.
