With principal photography having wrapped, we now have a first-look image from My Mother’s Wedding, the directorial debut of Kristin Scott Thomas, who also stars as the mother of Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller and Emily Beecham’s three romantically dysfunctional sisters as they try to navigate her third wedding.
The official synopsis for My Mother’s Wedding reads:
Three sisters return to their childhood home for a momentous weekend; the third wedding of their twice widowed mother, Diana (Kristin Scott Thomas). The three daughters are from very different walks of life: Georgina (Emily Beecham), a palliative nurse; Victoria (Sienna Miller), a Hollywood star; and Katherine (Scarlett Johansson), a Captain in the Royal Navy. Over the weekend, the family gathers to celebrate a new marriage, but mother and daughters alike are forced to revisit the past and confront the future, with help from a colourful group of unexpected wedding guests…
“I have wanted to direct for a long time and it was thrilling to create this fictional family using my own childhood memories as a springboard,” said Kristin Scott Thomas, who co-wrote the script with John Micklethwait. “Directing and acting with such talented actresses and reuniting with Scarlett Johansson has been exhilarating.”
Along with Scott Thomas, Johansson, Beecham and Miller, the cast of My Mother’s Wedding also includes Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire,), Sindhu Vee (Sex Education), Joshua McGuire (Anatomy of a Scandal), Mark Stanley (Game Of Thrones), Thibault de Montalembert (Call My Agent), Samson Kayo (The Bubble) and James Fleet (Four Weddings and a Funeral).
My Mother’s Wedding marks the third time that Scott Thomas and Johansson have starred as mother and daughter after 1998’s The Horse Whisperer and 2008’s The Other Boleyn Girl. As yet, there’s no word on a release date for the film.
