The dramedy tells the story of Jenny (Heigl), who comes out of the closet to her family to marry Kitty (Bledel), the woman she loves.
Fortunately for Heigl, it looks like this may just be the redemption movie she’s long needed. When they discover the truth they aren’t too happy about it as it goes against their values – something Jenny was aware of and one of the reasons she’d kept their relationship from them.
“We’re both wearing dresses”, Heigl says, seriously unimpressed. The only problem is, Jenny’s parents don’t know that Jenny is a lesbian.
We filmed a year ago in Cleveland over 18 days-though it didn’t feel like 18 days because the cast really responded and felt passionately about it.
It’s not played for laughs, but more of a modern day tragicomedy about a woman’s family accepting her for who she is.
Her latest movie, “Jenny’s Wedding”, might sound like familiar fare, but it’s a far cry from what she’s done before.
