Wedding Drama in Galt Niederhoffer's 'The Romantics' Trailer
Don't be fooled by the illustrious title, The Romantics isn't as good as it sounds. I saw it at Sundance and really didn't like it, but we'll get into that later. Apple has debuted the official trailer for Galt Niederhoffer's adaptation of her own book starring: Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Adam Brody and Elijah Wood. The film is essentially a more hipster-ish (or so I think) version of Rachel Getting Married, about a young girl's wedding and the chaos that ensues when her friends arrive. There is plenty of comedy and drama, but it's not even half as good as Rachel Getting Married, so tread carefully.

Seven close friends reunite for a wedding of two of their friends. Problems arise because the bride and the maid of honor have had a long rivalry over the groom. Based on Niederhoffer's novel of the same name.
The Romantics is both written and directed by American filmmaker & novelist Galt Niederhoffer, a veteran producer who also directed Myth America and Six Chicks in a Kitchen. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up by Paramount Famous Productions for distribution (a new indie label?). For any of you now interested in seeing this, The Romantics arrives in limited theaters starting on September 10th next month. I can't suggest seeing this, but it's not a terrible film either. Anyone curious?
