Tuna and his best friend Alex meet up to attend the wedding of their friend Richard. They pick up their motley band of friends and head to Central Park for the ceremony. But with storm clouds (both literal and figurative) forming, the entire affair runs the risk of going off the rails. Richard’s Wedding is a wonderfully shaggy, hilarious comedy that calls to mind the ensemble films of the 1970’s, but with a fresh, confident cast that includes some of contemporary American independent film’s wittiest performers. Richard’s Wedding is heavily dialogue driven and calls to mind the classic works of Woody Allen, as much as it does influential contemporary influences such as Richard Linklater and the Duplass Brothers. Writer, director, and star Onur Turkel takes one of film’s most popular genres, the wedding movie, and gives it a much-needed overhaul.
