The Son of the Bride (El hijo de la novia)
Drama, Comedy
At age 42, Rafael Belvedere is having a crisis. He's overwhelmed by his responsibilities and just isn't having any fun. He has spent most of his life frantically trying to run the restaurant his father Nino founded. He has achieved success, but continues to live in the old man's shadow. He rarely visits his aging mother Nora. His ex-wife is bitter towards him because he doesn't spend enough time with their daughter. And finally, Rafael is too self-involved to make a commitment to his girlfriend Nati. Just when Rafael feels most alone, a series of unexpected events lead him to reevaluate his life. A minor heart attack forces him to slow down and a reunion with Juan Carlos, a childhood friend, helps Rafael to reconstruct his past and look at the present in new ways. Most importantly, when his father makes the decision to fulfill his mother's dream of getting married in a church, it gives Rafael a task to focus on; bringing the family together to create a new memory they can share. Rated R for language.
