We gave it a B

In Rachel Getting Married Hathaway mostly shines (but occasionally annoys) as an addict on furlough from rehab to attend the wedding of her sister (Rosemarie DeWitt). She nearly destroys the whole celebration, dredging up tragedies her family prefers to keep buried. Jonathan Demme creates an ?Altmanesque carnival of roaming musicians and off-the-cuff speeches. EXTRAS include commentaries — but not from the folks you’re most curious about. B
