"Rachel Getting Married" is a 2008 drama film directed by Jonathan Demme, and starring Anne Hathaway, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Debra Winger. The film competed for the Venice Film Festival's top prestigious prize, the Golden Lion and was released at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was released in select theaters on October 3, 2008.


When Kym (Anne Hathaway), an ex-model who has been in and out from rehab for the past 10 years, returns home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt), she brings a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party's abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym with her black-comic one-liners and knack for bombshell drama is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic.


The film is directed by Jonathan Demme, and was shot in Stamford, Connecticut. The working title for the film was orginally "Dancing with Shiva", but was officially changed to "Rachel Getting Married".

The film opened in the 65th edition of the Venice Film Festival, where it was among twenty-one others films competing for the top prize, the Golden Lion. Other Hollywood films that competed include, "The Burning Plain", and "The Wrestler", which later went on to win. The film also opened in Canada's Toronto Film Festival on September 6, 2008.
