Synopsis:

Frank and Lindsay have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and most especially each other.  For 72 hours, they are trespassers in paradise.

But the weekend’s relentless events continually force them together, and if you fight with

someone long enough, anything can happen. When the instinct to love proves very difficult to kill, they must decide which is stronger: their hearts or their common sense.

We like it because:

Fresh from their incredible successes in the John Wick films and Stranger Things respectively, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, previously seen together onscreen in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, among others, team up for a razor-sharp romantic comedy that will delight fans of these iconic, much-loved stars.

The directorial debut of Emmy-nominated writer Victor Levin (Mad Men, Mad About You), DESTINATION WEDDING sees Reeves and Ryder (in their fourth screen pairing) meeting on the way to a wedding and discovering they have plenty to talk about – mainly their hatred ofweddings and each other. Squabbling and bickering ensue before they even reach the wedding when things take an unexpected turn.

This is a wickedly quotable screwball comedy – imagine Before Sunrise –  with lashings of dry wit, smart interplay and a sex scene that will surely go down in cinematic history. And the unique onscreen chemistry of Reeves and Ryder, combined with a pithy script, will have audiences rolling in the aisles at their cynical outlook of people walking up the aisle.

DESTINATION WEDDING will close out the KeanuCon film festival 28th April.  It will then release in cinemas on 10th May 2019 and on 

demand from 21st June 2019 from Vertigo Releasing.
