"The Wedding Banquet"

What if you knew a secret that would cancel the wedding? This foreign-language film, directed by Ang Lee, centers around a closeted groom, Wai-Tung Gao, who's pressured to marry a woman by his traditional Chinese parents. Gao and his partner Simon struggle with planning the sham of a wedding. The bride, Wei-Wei, needs a green card, so she agrees to be Gao's bride, adding to the scandal. This comedy becomes more complex as tangled lies prove to be too much for the characters.

As a wedding party member, honesty is always the best policy. Even if speaking the truth is difficult, the bride or groom will likely thank you in the end.
