Confetti

Starring Martin Freeman, Jessica Stevenson, Stephen Mangan, Meredith MacNeill, Robert Webb, Olivia Colman, Vincent Franklin, Jason Watkins, Jimmy Carr, Felicity Montagu, Alison Steadman
Written and Directed by Debbie Isitt
website: FoxSearchlight.com

IN SHORT: nnn. [Rated R for nudity and language . 94 minutes]

A sharp and affectionate comedy featuring an ensemble of UK comedic talents, CONFETTI follows three couples as they duke it out to win a bridal magazine contest for Most Original Wedding of the Year. The talented cast -- which includes Martin Freeman (THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, LOVE ACTUALLY, The Office), Jessica Stevenson (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, SPACED, THE ROYLE FAMILY), Stephen Mangan (GREEN WING), Felicity Montagu (IM ALAN PARTRIDGE), award-winning comedian Jimmy Carr in his first screen performance and Alison Steadman (TOPSY-TURVY, LIFE IS SWEET) -- was afforded total creative freedom within the confines of a carefully crafted story frame. To prepare, the cast took part in weeks of intense workshops where they began the process of developing and inhabiting their unique roles.

Michael and Joanna (Robert Webb, Olivia Colman), the naturalists (which is not the same as nudists although as they're British and we're not, we miss the difference entirely)

Matt and Sam (Martin Freeman, Jessica Stevenson), who want to bring back the days of the grand MGM musical spectaculars. Brushing off his top hat. Tying up his white tie. Getting some fine tail. .. not quite, but close to that. Ah, Putting on his tails! That's the ticket!

Josef and Isabelle (Stephen Mangan, Meredith MacNeill)-- the tennis nuts.

On average, a first run movie ticket will run you Ten Bucks. Were Cranky able to set his own price to Confetti, he would have paid . . .

$5.00
