ROSA'S WEDDING

Duration: 99 mins
Country of Origin: Spain

Cast: Candela Peña, Sergi López, Nathalie Poza,
Ramón Barea, Paula Usero

Thursday 19th August: 7.30pm
Friday 20th August: 2:00pm

Director: Icíar Bollaín

About to turn 45, seamstress Rosa (Peña) works in the wardrobe department of a film production company in Valencia. Besides the pressure of her job, she's also besieged from all sides by the demands of family members: her widowed dad, Antonio (Ramón Barea), who insists he's moving in with her; her divorced brother Armando (a scene-stealing Sergi López), who has financial problems; her possibly-alcoholic sister Violeta (Nathalie Poza); and her grown-up daughter Lidia (Paula Usero) who's living with a musician in Manchester and raising twin infants. Plus, there's the constant favours for friends and neighbours…

Taken completely for granted and tired of living for others, Rosa retreats to her childhood home in the scenic coastal town of Benicàssim and - much to the consternation of her family - announces her engagement to someone that those around her can't quite accept or believe!

A word-of-mouth sensation in its native Spain and nominated for eight Spanish Academy Awards, ROSA'S WEDDING is a bright and breezy mix of comedy and pathos, anchored by Peña's memorable and truthful turn. Indeed, Rosa's winsome determination to appreciate her own beauty, complexity and spirit is a life-affirming call to self-empowerment and independence.
