Son of the Bride

Rated 4.0 Self-absorbed restaurant owner Rafael Belvedere (Ricardo Darin) is having a mid-life crisis in this smart, witty Argentinean drama that was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar. Rafael’s business responsibilities have devoured his personal life. His girlfriend is hurt by his lack of long-term commitment to their relationship. His ex-wife wants him to spend more quality time with their daughter, and his father wants help planning a church wedding to fulfill the Alzheimer-tainted dreams of Rafael’s mother. A heart attack forces the 40-something workaholic to re-evaluate his frantic lifestyle as he reunites with a childhood friend who has survived a family tragedy and tempers his cell-phone addiction with a newfound compassion. Juan Jose Campanella directed this affectionate, refreshing look at knotted family ties and compromised principals.
