You are invited to join the festivities as one colorful and eclectic family gathers from all over the world for a traditional wedding - a non-stop four-day celebration as unpredictable as the monsoon season itself. Anything goes when love, lust, hope and happiness take them by storm and bring them ever closer. With this family, when it rains, it pours. From award-winning director Mira Nair, Monsoon Wedding is an exhilarating film Carrie Rickey of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls "a banquet for the heart."

Poignant Indian tale of family, love, and culture.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this is essentially a romantic drama with some comic scenes, it also addresses serious issues such as child molestation and adultery. A woman confronts someone who molested her in childhood because she fears he's moved on to another family member. Nothing is shown. Another woman going into an arranged marriage tries to have one last tryst with her lover in a car and is stopped and harassed by police. Overall the movie focuses on an admirably caring family and blooming romance.
