Many people grew up watching (and loving) the 1991 Father of the Bride with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton and so the upcoming Latinx remake is the film we didn’t know we would have liked however one we’re thrilled about. The movie retains the premise — a father coming to phrases along with his daughter getting married — however now a Cuban American household is on the middle and the household is much less picture-perfect and conventional than earlier iterations together with a 1950 launch. Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan star within the HBO Max movie, out June 16, as Miami architect Billy and his spouse, Ingrid and the brand new trailer gives a peek into the updates and additions to the story.
Whereas Annie Banks (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and her household had been general largely conventional within the ’91 model, it appears like this replace is bucking some traditions. We discover out that Sophie (Adria Arjona) is the one who proposed to Adan (Diego Boneta) they usually need to pay for the marriage despite the fact that they’re attorneys recent out of faculty working for a non-profit. However Billy just isn’t having it and desires to tackle the accountability — although the finances and marriage ceremony planning remains to be surprising to him, clearly. The movie is directed by Gaz Alazraki with a screenplay from Matt Lopez and it additionally stars Saturday Night time Stay alum Chloe Fineman as the marriage planner, famously performed by Martin Quick because the lovable and eccentric, Franck within the 1991 model. Nonetheless, a serious change is that Billy and Ingrid are getting ready to a divorce they usually’re maintaining appearances for the sake of Sophie and her little sister, performed by Dora’s Isabela Merced.
“His marriage to his spouse is on the rocks,” García, 66, informed Leisure Weekly. “It’s sliding downhill and is on a slippery slope, not as a result of they don’t love one another. We’ve form of grown into totally different areas, and we take our marriage as a right at this level.” Estefan, 64, added “She’s pushing a button — that D-word with divorce. She’s making an attempt to push him to get up as a result of a 12 months of remedy actually hadn’t woken him up. However that call is a tricky one for a Latina to make.”
One other large change is that as an alternative of white, non-Latinx and wealthy households just like the earlier variations, this time round it’s two Latin households in Miami. Adan’s aspect, an exceedingly wealthy Mexican American household, brings of their tradition so count on to see illustration of each Mexican and Cuban traditions. “There are loads of similarities within the meals and the love of music, the love of household, these issues we share as Latin tradition,” Estefan informed PEOPLE.
