Rachel Getting Married (2008)

Dancing with Shiva

This is a dark engrossing film that is superbly crafted, but sometimes uncomfortable to watch.

From Netflix: "Longstanding family conflicts resurface when drama queen Kym (Anne Hathaway, in her first Oscar-nominated role), a former model who's been in and out of rehab for 10 years, returns to her parents' home just before her sister Rachel's (Rosemarie DeWitt) wedding. Debra Winger co-stars as the girls' emotionally distant mother in director Jonathan Demme's critically acclaimed portrait of family angst and unrest." 2008, 1 hr 53 minutes Trailer.
