Spain (2013), 90 min, Spanish with English Subtitles

Is there anything worse than your ex-boyfriend marrying another girl and getting invited to their wedding?  Yes, this happening three times in a month, and exactly under this premise and based on a true story, is how Javier Ruiz Caldera’s new comedy begins. Breixo Corral and Pablo Alen, the film’s screenwriters, were inspired by a common friend’s true experience and they presented the project to María Angulo, one of the producers of "Three Many Weddings": “We realized the comedic potential of the story right away and how good it was to give the comical weight to a female protagonist, something which is not that usual in our market.”

Director Javier Ruiz Caldera will be in attendance presenting the film.
