A touching, moving story about how families can change
It's tiring to read reviews that are not about the quality of a movie but instead are written to rehash a crowd mentality - in this case to trash Katherine Heigl, who is actually quite good in the film.
Jenny's Wedding tells the all-too-common story of a conservative Christian family that has tremendous difficulty in accepting a gay son or daughter. Even in 2015, otherwise loving family members can inflict guilt on their gay offspring rather than come to terms with reality. Jenny's Wedding captures this dynamic in a sensitive way that relates Jenny's story from the perspective of all family members (including Jenny's partner). All the acting is excellent, and the story's arc reveals changes that that are honestly earned, without sentimentality.
This film is a fine, underrated romantic drama that deserves to be seen.
