“I had the best time working with Winona again. She’s such a great actress. We had fun together making Destination Wedding—too much fun,” said Reeves. “We play characters that are opposites of the same coin. I’m more of a pessimist, and she’s more of an optimist, which causes lots of fighting between the two of us. . . . I haven’t done a lot of romantic comedies, and I really loved the humor of the script and I loved all the dramatic experiences the characters go through.”

'It’s not unusual to see a romantic comedy that is a) set a wedding and b) unfolding between two characters who initially hate each other, but Destination Wedding does manage to spin these tired cliches into something somewhat fresh.'

Keanu Reeves & Winona Ryder’s DESTINATION WEDDING Opens at the Monica Film Center August 31.

August 23, 2018 by Jordan D.M.

Director’s Statement, Destination Wedding:

I have always loved grumpy people — the less self-edited the better. They seem fearless; they make you laugh and they make you think. And if you ask enough questions, you find that sometimes there are excellent reasons for their grumpiness. Life, after all, does hand out its injuries.

None of which is to say that grumpiness makes for a good long-term plan. Without at least a little hope and optimism, life gets pointless in a hurry. And so grumpy people present a question, in real life and, sometimes, in stories: can they heal? Do they still care to try? The struggle of hope versus experience is high-risk and valiant. It can be funny and even joyful. I root for these people. Sometimes, I’m sure I’m one of them.

Take two really grumpy strangers, then — smart ones with very painful pasts, whose idealism has been beaten into a thin paste. Throw them together in such a situation that their grumpiness makes them instant pariahs, as for instance a destination wedding — a weekend-long, unrelenting proclamation of other people’s happiness. They cannot participate in this joy-fest anymore than they can participate in life itself, which is always going on over there somewhere, just out of reach. They hate each other and they hate themselves. They hate the bride, they hate the groom, and they have horrible histories with both. And with others in the wedding party. They have come only because they had to; they were invited only because they had to be. Nobody wants them there, least of all them, and as a result they are seated together at every event in what is, for them, 72-hour marathon of pain. Make them tresspassers in paradise, fish who have been taken out of water and plunged into some other awful, toxic liquid. Stretch their tolerance beyond its limits, watch them thrash about, let them air all their grievances.

And then, see them recognize a spark in each other, and feel one within themselves.What will they do with it, if anything? Embrace it or turn away? Are they just too far gone to try? Is it wiser, and safer, and calmer, and better, to stay hopeless?

Maybe we’re all battlers at our core. Maybe we know that capitulation equals a kind of death. Maybe the struggle is worth it. Maybe not. There are no easy answers. But, as always, it’s the question that matters.

I’m deeply indebted to Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, who mastered a mountain of material, threw their big hearts and big talents into it, and shot a feature film in nine and a half summer days. And I’m so grateful to Gail Lyon, Elizabeth Dell, Giorgio Scali, Callie Andreadis, William Ross, Matt Maddox and so many other wonderful artists working behind the cameras and behind the scenes. Independent films defy the odds by virtue of their very existence, and no one gets to the theater without wonderful creative partners like them.

Thank you for coming to see Destination Wedding. I hope you enjoy it.

–Victor Levin, Writer-Director, August 2018

Hi, just wanted to know if this topic is for sharing articles about the film only, and if there is a topic to discuss about KR films?
Just seen Destination wedding yesterday...wanted to see if anyone has seen it and have shared impressions.

Thanks!

Destination wedding was a nice comedy though I don’t know if very realistic ( I am not a psycholog). Anyway somehow cheering up :) Mayby I simplify and generalise but Keanu’s roles are either a kind of ‚a lonely rider’ (with a mission) or ‚a comedy love’. The first kind starts with Bill&Ted and this boyish adventure continues and changes to Pointbreak, Street Kings, Matrix or John Wick. The second kind is ‚Walking in the air’ or ‚The Lake House’. Like both of then. Of course there are other projects too :)

I've read several people describing it as a theater play. I was little puzzled with KR part...at least for the first half of the film...it sounds like reciting...but I did enjoyed the second part...the song in the shower :D (what a charming disaster!), the conversations :D..."what if I keep my mind open to the possibility of keeping my mind open to the possibility of keeping my mind open..." and of course "I believe that there is nobody for anyone"...
Winona Ryder is very well acting.
I know some people acting quite like them...in life!

I'm not a huge fan of his comedies, but the Lake house was nice, didn't sound fake or anything, a nice metaphor on the right timing in love.

Some say he has often "loner" parts because he his a loner in life...and that's why he is not really acting (which is not true from my point of view), but of course he his not at the opposite of these characters.

I would really like to see him in very different roles...
