Polish Wedding ★★½ 1997 (PG-13)

Strongwilled teenager Hala (Danes) throws her workingclass Polish/ American family into a tizzy when she becomes pregnant and the family decides she must get married. But Hala's not the only one whose life is romntically complicated—her mom Jadzia's (Olin) had a longtime affair with Roman (Serbedzja), which husband Bolek (Byrne) tolerates because he's afraid of losing her. Too slapsticky but the cast is game and it does have heart. 107m/C VHS, DVD . Claire Danes, Lena Olin, Gabriel Byrne, Adam Trese, Rade Serbedzija, Mili Avital, Daniel Lapaine, Kristen Bell; D: Theresa Connelly; W: Theresa Connelly; C: Guy Dufaux; M: Luis Bacalov.
