Margot At The Wedding (2007)

Margot At The Wedding (2007)

The siblings: Margot (Nicole Kidman) and Pauline (Jennifer Jason Leigh)

What puts them at odds? Pauline announces she’s getting wed to slacker Malcolm (Jack Black), who Margot cannot stand. Soon, the bubbling cauldron of family secrets and strain comes to a boil as the sisters spar.

Given how much pressure weddings and their associated stresses put on families, it’s a wonder anyone on film agrees to get hitched at all. But when you’ve got a sister as startlingly unpleasant as Kidman’s Margot, you’re probably safer trying to keep her away from the event as much as possible. Who would ever trust that woman with anything said in confidence? Only family could be so blind and unaware. To help build that dysfunctional relationship, Kidman, Leigh and Black all shared a house. Wish we could’ve been a fly on the wall at those improv sessions…

Which sibling is your favourite?
