This emotionally charged film stars Nicole Kidman as Margot, the harsh, acid-tongued sister of the bride who disapproves of the groom and isn't afraid to say so. In the midst of many painful scenes exposing dysfunctional relationships, the movie serves as a reminder that while we can't choose our family members, we can try to accept them as the people they are. In the event that you have a legitimate objection to the bride marrying the groom, consider being honest, especially if their relationship is abusive. Otherwise, try to be happy for the couple, and if there isn't a serious reason to oppose the marriage, forever hold your peace.
