Winner of BAFTA Awards for Best Film, Director, Actor, and Supporting Actress in 1995.

Lovable Englishman Charles and his group of friends seem to be unlucky in love. When Charles meets a beautiful American named Carrie at a wedding, he thinks his luck may have changed. But, after one magical night, Carrie returns to the States, ending what might have been. As Charles and Carrie’s paths continue to cross—over a handful of nuptials and one funeral—he comes to believe they are meant to be together, even if their timing always seems to be off.

“It would be hard to imagine a more perfect marriage of personalities, sensibilities and talents than that which has been assembled here.”

—Rob Salem, Toronto Star

About the filmmaker:

Mike Newell is an English director and producer. He started his career working in television on a variety of productions, but he became somewhat well known for his acclaimed adaptation of Alexander Dumas’ The Man in the Iron Mask (1977). Newell made his feature-length directorial debut a few years later with the low-budget horror film The Awakening (1980). In 1997, he directed the Academy Award nominated Donnie Brasco. His commercial success in the film industry skyrocketed why he directed Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005. The UK Film Council confirmed in their 2010 Statistical Yearbook that, due to the of the success of the film, Newell became the third most commercially successful British director in recent years, behind Christopher Nolan and David Yates. In 1994, Newell won the BAFTA Award for Best Direction for his film Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), which was also nominated for two Academy Awards—Best Picture and Screenplay—in 1995.
