Ceremony (2010)

Writer:  Max Winkler
Director: Max Winkler 
Starring: Michael Angarano, Uma Thurman, Reece Thompson, Lee Pace  

an extremely self-centered guy in his early twenties, accompanied by his shy and introverted friend, crashes the all weekend wedding event of the older woman he is madly in love with and tries to convince her that he is the one she should be with.

The Woman 
i highly enjoyed this. i thought this was going to be  pretty poor, but was pleasantly surprised. i have actually been putting off watching it because usually these sort of indie-ish "romantic comedies" are terrible, but this was a success, in my opinion. the characters are all extremely flawed, and most of them are not even likeable. the main character sam davis is a huge ass, but you begin to see how desperate he is, and yet how misled he is and begin to empathize with him. as the movie unfolds his heartbreak is tangible, which only makes him more desperate and more blind to the inevitable outcome. the story telling was great. the direction was quite beautiful. and the ending was perfect. i could watch this one more than once.

way to take a completely cliche plot and make it incredibly unique, max winkler. hats off to you, sir.
