Hollywood, depending on whom one sometimes speaks to, is either behind the times or right on target.
Katherine Heigl’s newest film, Jenny’s Wedding, is right on target. In light of the recent SCOTUS ruling that states that marriage is no longer just between one man and one woman, Jenny’s Wedding put a human face on the issue.
Based on the trailer, Jenny (Katherine Heigl) and Kitty (Alexis Bledel) are not stereotypes. They are simply two women in love who want marry and have the same privileges as Jenny’s straight and married sister, Anne (Grace Gummer). Jenny’s parents, Eddie (Tom Wilkinson) and Rose (Linda Emond), again based on the trailer, are like many parents. They see the change that is going on in this country, but they cannot truly confront their own feelings until the issue in the persona of their daughter.
It will be interesting to see how this movie is received when it is released later this month.
