WATCH THE TRAILER:
"At once acidic and cuddly, [RICHARD'S WEDDING] is a lot like its writer, director and primary ruckus-maker, Onur Tukel, who sets a new standard for laughs-per-minute in a micro-budget comedy."
- Steve Dollar, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
"[EDITOR'S PICK!] Often hilarious! Mostly an excuse to give us extended bull sessions, with director-writer-star Tukel's funny motormouth ruminations taking center stage."
- Bilge Ebiri, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"Tukel might be this generation's Woody Allen."
- Michael Dunaway, PASTE MAGAZINE
Factory 25 presents RICHARD'S WEDDING, a hilariously shaggy and much-needed overhaul of the popular "wedding movie" genre. Winner of a Special Jury Prize for Screenwriting at the Sarasota Film Festival, writer/director/star Onur Tukel's irreverently witty comedy makes its NYC theatrical premiere with a week-long run, June 1 - 7.
Calling to mind ensemble films of the '70s, RICHARD'S WEDDING follows Tuna (Tukel, co-star of SEPTIEN) and his best friend Alex (Jennifer Prediger, UNCLE KENT) as they meet up to attend the wedding of their friend Richard (Lawrence Michael Levine, GREEN). They pick up their motley band of friends and head to Central Park for the ceremony, but with storm clouds forming (both literal and figurative), the entire affair threatens to go off the rails.
The film features a incredible mix of New York indie-film talent, including Oona Mekas (THE FUTURE), Darrill Rosen (JOSHUA), Josephine Decker (UNCLE KENT), and Dustin Guy Defa (director of BAD FEVER and FAMILY NIGHTMARE).
86 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated. A Factory 25 release.
