TODAY’S NEW RELEASE: GRINGO WEDDING
Official Selection at countless festivals, including Bogota International Film Festival, Ft. Lauderdale, and Cartegena, as well as Winner at the Orlando Hispanic Film Festival, “Gringo Wedding” is a warm, romantic comedy by Tas Salini. Yes viewers, it is a romantic comedy that is predictable and adheres to the classic format, but so long as it makes us viewers feel good, do we really mind? Are there actually many romantic comedies out there that do not follow a specific formula? So let us dive into the premise friends; our lead is the handsome, playboy, Matt who grows tired and uneasy about his player lifestyle and confides to a friend that he would really like to meet a gorgeous Latina woman. (I am unsure why this is challenging for Matt in Miami, sarcasm intended.) Anyway, his friend leaves a flyer on his car that invites men to travel to Columbia for a week to meet women. Not surprising when I say Matt decides to do precisely that, meets the astonishingly gorgeous Rebecca and after just a few days, they fall in-love, make love and marry. This comes at the dismay of both of their families and this is aside from the more glaringly obvious reasons. When Rebecca moves to Miami to live with her new husband, the lifestyle and cultural change is more than her privileged self can bear and she returns to her home country. Will Matt pursue his wife and will they be able to compromise and find a life that they both can live? Well, “Gringo Wedding” is about finding that out and I discovered that answer and a few hours of entertainment too!
