Embarking on a national publicity tour to promote his new book, Palestine Peace Not Apartheid, former US president Jimmy Carter ignites an international firestorm of controversy when he argues that only Israel 's complete withdrawal from the occupied territories can bring lasting peace to the Middle East . Intimate, informative and altogether engrossing, Jimmy Carter Man From Plains is a candid portrait of a Nobel Prize-winning humanitarian and statesman whose compassion and steadfast sense of justice remains undiminished by time. Directed by Academy Awardr-winner Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs Best Director, 1991; Philadelphia, 1993).
When KYM (Anne Hathaway) returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister RACHEL (Rosemarie Dewitt), she brings a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party's abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym-with her black-comic one-liners and knack for bombshell drama-is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic.
Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that have always been a hallmark of Jonathan Demme's films, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED paints a strikingly perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait. Director Demme, first-time writer Jenny Lumet, and the stellar acting ensemble leaven the drama of these difficult but compelling people with wry affection and generosity of spirit.
