Description

Join the High Country Lifelong Learners at the Watauga County Public Library for a showing of the 2001 film "Monsoon Wedding."

(1 hr., 54 min.).

A stressed father, a bride-to-be with a secret, a smitten event planner, and relatives from around the world create much ado about the preparations for an arranged marriage in India.
A story set in the modern upper-middle class of India, where telecommunications and a western lifestyle mix with old traditions, like the arranged wedding young Aditi accepts when she ends the affair with a married TV producer. The groom is an Indian living in Texas, and all relatives from both families, some from distant places like Australia, come to New Delhi during the monsoon season to attend the wedding. The four-day arrangements and celebrations will see clumsy organization, family parties and drama, dangers to the happy end of the wedding, lots of music and even a new romance for the wedding planner Dubey with the housemaid Alice.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die."

All are welcome! Bring a chair cushion and a beverage, if you wish; High Country Lifelong Learners will provide popcorn.
