This week Adam, Dave, Greg and Nick take a look at new release films – ‘Drift’, ‘The Big Wedding’, ‘Camille Rewinds’ and ‘The Hunt’. This episode also features interviews with the stars of ‘The Big Wedding’ – Topher Grace, Katherine Heigl and Susan Sarandon. We also talk to Sam Worthington about his new film ‘Drift’. Greg and Dave also take a look at some of the films that are screening at he 2013 German Film Festival, while all the boys nominate their best acting performances by Australian actors and actresses.
Summary: To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.
