Kristin Scott Thomas’s directorial debut, My Mother’s Wedding, has released its first look. Scarlett Johansson, Sienna Miller, and Emily Beecham co-star in the film.
The plot revolves on three sisters who return to their family’s house for their twice-widowed mother, Diana’s, third wedding. Georgina, a hospice nurse, Victoria, a Hollywood actress, and Katherine, a Royal Navy commander, now have very different lifestyles. The family meets during the weekend to celebrate a new relationship, but mother and daughters alike are forced to review the past and face the future, with the assistance of a lively bunch of unexpected guests.
The screenplay is written by Scott Thomas and John Micklethwait. Johansson, Miller, and Beecham play the sisters in the movie while Scott Thomas plays the mother, Diana Frost.
Scott Thomas and Johansson have played mother and daughter three times since 1998’s The Horse Whisperer.
Scott Thomas gave an official statement about the movie, “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. Directing and acting with such talented actresses and reuniting with Scarlett Johansson has been exhilarating.”
Freida Pinto, Sindhu Vee, Joshua McGuire, Mark Stanley, Thibault de Montalembert, and Samson Kayo round out the cast.
The movie is set to release in 2023.
