From writer/director Icíar Bollaín and breezily mixing comedy and pathos Rosa’s Wedding features the superb Candela Peña (Truman, Kiki, Love to Love) as a woman who decides to take charge of her life after always putting others first.
About to turn 45, seamstress Rosa (Peña) works in the wardrobe department of a film production company in Valencia. Besides the pressure of her job, she’s also besieged by the demands of family members: her widowed dad, Antonio (Ramón Barea); her divorced brother Armando (a scene-stealing Sergi López); her possibly-alcoholic sister Violeta (Nathalie Poza); and her grown-up daughter Lidia (Paula Usero). Plus, there’s the constant favours for friends and neighbours…
Tired of living for others, Rosa retreats to her childhood home in the scenic coastal town of Benicàssim and – much to the consternation of her family – announces her engagement to someone that those around her can’t quite accept or believe. Changing her life is not going to be easy, especially if it’s not in the family script!

“Rosa’s Wedding takes a sledgehammer to the notion that female virtue must depend on putting others first. It shouts out wildly that everyone deserves a special day.”
