About to turn 45, Rosa realises that she’s always lived her life to serve everyone else. She decides it’s time for a radical change and the fulfilment of her own dreams. Taking control of her life, Rosa announces a surprise engagement to a mysterious suitor, much to the dismay of her family.  Getting married, it seems, is going to be the hardest thing she’s ever done. This wedding will be something very special…  

This bright mix of comedy and pathos is anchored by the brilliant Candela Peña as Rosa, whose winsome determination to appreciate her own beauty, complexity and spirit is a life-affirming call to self-empowerment and independence.  Having already scooped over 20 awards around the world Rosa’s Wedding is yet another success crafted by prolific Spanish writer/director Icíar Bollaín (Take My Eyes, Yuli, Even The Rain and numerous others).  Rosa’s Wedding has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

A perfect tragic-comedy: beautiful, funny, overwhelming, festive and devilishly happy. Like life itself. Peña is spectacular. Javier Ocaña, El Pais
