My First Wedding (Mi Primera Boda), the comedy from Argentina, is having its Los Angeles premiere at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival on Saturday.
Jewish-born Adrián (Daniel Hendler) and Catholic-born Leonora (Natalia Oreiro) have finally reached their wedding day. Instead of gracefully embracing matrimony, Adrián spends the hours leading up to the ceremony trying to postpone it, not because he has cold feet (or does he?), but because he has clumsily lost both wedding rings. Disaster ensues in director Ariel Winograd’s winning comedy about the politics of the proverbial “Big Day.” Nominated for 4 Argentinean Academy Awards in 2011
