It’s Christmas in Florida at the Fowlers, a time for fun, love and family. But will it be?
Consider the list of characters arriving at the homestead. First the adopted daughter, Alana (Apolonia Davalos), a young black woman raised by white parents — Richard (James Rebhorn) and Meryl (Kristine Sutherland) — who are now facing a traumatic health issue.
In tow Alana brings her white fiancé, Kirk (Brendan Griffin), with the thought of planning a June wedding. But Kirk, after arriving at her parent’s home, suddenly announces a change in plans.
Not done yet. Alana’s stepbrother, Paul (Eric Aragon), will also be there. He is a recovering alcoholic and is overtly gay. Alana also brings with her Paul’s ex-lover, Roy (Roger Stewart) — the two are good friends and she’s always felt that her brother (when he was drinking) was cruel to Roy.
Roy, not wanting Paul to think that he is a total loser, asks Alana if he can bring along his friend Gavin (Jason T. Gaffney), who he will pass off as his current boyfriend — he hasn’t been in a relationship since he parted ways with Paul (and that was two years ago).
Right about now you’re thinking that this is going to be a soap opera with neck-deep suds. You couldn’t be more wrong in that assessment … filmmaker Scott Gabriel has deftly blended together a comedy of errors and misunderstandings, coupled with just enough pathos, to give The Perfect Wedding an edge. A winning edge!
We can tell you this much, Christmas at the Fowlers this year will be a Christmas that no one will ever forget … dad included!
Bonus nuggets include a behind-the-scenes production featurette and interviews with the cast members.
