The Big Wedding, the newest marriage comedy written and directed by Justin Zackham and starring Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, and Diane Keaton, is getting walloped by reviewers, but it’s really not a bad film if you arrive at the theater with reasonable expectations. It’s a funny – okay, vulgar – movie with a big-name cast, and Robin Williams – who I feel is good in every role – plays a Catholic priest.
Whether or not you’re interested in seeing Topher Grace as Jared, the 30-year-old virgin (essentially an older Eric from ‘That 70s Show,’ Grace’s breakout role’) or Christine Ebersole as the aptly named “Muffin,” mother of the bride to be (Amanda Seyfried), there are some things worth looking out for in The Big Wedding – and they’re on the walls in the big house where said “big wedding” takes place, and in De Niro’s character, Don’s, studio. This is where you can see the work of two Connecticut artists: David Gesualdi of Bethel and David Boyajian of New Fairfield.
