The Wilde Wedding from 2017 is a romantic comedy directed and written by Damian Harris. Starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, and Patrick Stewart, the movie centers around a family wedding that brings together a diverse group of characters with their own unique personalities, secrets, and pasts. The movie begins by introducing Eve Wilde (Glenn Close), a retired film star who is about to marry Harold (Patrick Stewart), a writer, in their gorgeous estate in upstate New York. Eve invites her three sons Laurent (Christian Slater), Jimmy (Noah Emmerich), and Rory (Peter Facinelli) as well as her ex-husband, famous stage actor Laurence Darling (John Malkovich), who also happens to be Jimmy's father.

As the wedding day approaches, tensions start to rise, and it becomes clear that the Wildes are a complicated family. Eve still has feelings for Laurence but is trying to move on with Harold, who is a bit insecure and feels like he's living in Laurence's shadow. Meanwhile, Jimmy, a struggling writer, is desperate for validation from his parents, especially his father. Laurent, a successful novelist, has his own issues with his mother and is struggling to connect with his wife, Lori (Minnie Driver), who is a bit of a wild card. Rory is a Hollywood agent who hasn't spoken to his family in years and shows up uninvited with his much younger girlfriend, Becky (Yael Stone).

As the wedding festivities kick off, old grudges resurface and secrets are revealed, leading to some hilarious and emotional moments. The Wilde Wedding seamlessly blends drama, romance, and comedy, making for a charming and heartwarming movie that explores the complexities of family dynamics in a relatable and entertaining way.

Glenn Close delivers a standout performance as Eve Wilde, effortlessly portraying a confident, charismatic, and flawed character who struggles with her past and present loves. John Malkovich brings his signature dry wit and charm to his role as Laurence Darling, and Patrick Stewart shines as Harold, bringing a delightful mix of vulnerability and humor to the role. The supporting cast, including Christian Slater, Noah Emmerich, Peter Facinelli, and Minnie Driver, all deliver strong performances, each bringing their own unique flavor to the Wildes' family dynamic.
