Fresh off the World Premiere at Malaga Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize and the Silver Biznaga for Best Supporting Actress for Nathalie Poza, and the San Sebastian Film Festival!

Overworked, under-appreciated and about to turn 45, costume designer Rosa (Candela Peña, All About My Mother) is the always relied-upon mother, sister, daughter, and friend who will selflessly put the needs of everyone else before her own, invisible to the world around her—until her assistance is needed. Endlessly pulled in different directions by her brother Armando (Sergi López, The Innocence, Happy As Lazzaro) and sister Violeta (Nathalie Poza, winner Best Supporting Actress at this year’s Malaga Film Festival), she reaches the end of her already-frayed rope when her aging father Antonio (Ramón Barea, Everybody Knows) unexpectedly wants to move in with her. With the demands around her rising and her dreams of opening her own dress shop fading, the beleaguered single mother finally breaks with a surprising announcement: she’s engaged to be married to a most unusual suitor. As the big day approaches and her needy family grows more determined to maintain the status quo, Rosa slowly comes to appreciate her own self-worth, going from invisibility to independence. With an absolutely stellar cast, expert writing, and a fabulous mix of comedy, drama, and near-parody, Rosa’s Wedding is one of the year’s best stories coming from one of Cine Latino MSP’s longtime favorites, acclaimed writer/director Icíar Bollaín (Yuli, The Olive Tree).

Recommended for Ages 12+

Con exceso de trabajo, poco apreciada y a punto de cumplir 45 años, la diseñadora de vestuario Rosa (Candela Peña, TODO SOBRE MI MADRE) es la madre, hermana, hija y amiga en la que siempre se ha confiado y que pondrá desinteresadamente las necesidades de los demás antes que los de ella, invisible para el mundo que la rodea, hasta que alguien necesite su ayuda. Tirada sin cesar en diferentes direcciones por su hermano Armando (Sergi López, LA INOCENCIA, FELIZ COMO LAZZARO) y su hermana Violeta (Nathalie Poza, ganadora del Premio a la Mejor Actriz de Reparto en el Festival de Cine de Málaga de este año), llega al final de su ya raída cuerda cuando su anciano padre Antonio (Ramón Barea, TODOS LO SABE) inesperadamente quiere mudarse a vivir con ella. Con las demandas a su alrededor en aumento y sus sueños de abrir su propia tienda de ropa desvaneciéndose, la asediada madre soltera finalmente rompe con un anuncio sorprendente: está comprometida para casarse con un pretendiente de lo más inusual. A medida que se acerca el gran día y su familia necesitada se vuelve más decidida a mantener el status quo, Rosa comienza a apreciar su propia valía, pasando de la invisibilidad a la independencia. Con un elenco absolutamente estelar, un guión brillante y una fabulosa mezcla de comedia, drama y casi parodia, La boda de Rosa es una de las mejores comedias del año proveniente de una de las directoras favoritas de Cine Latino MSP, la aclamada Icíar Bollaín (YULI , EL OLIVO).
