The honour of your presence is requested for Palace Cinemas’ Sangria Reception of ROSA’S WEDDING, the joyous new romantic comedy that was the number 1 hit of this year’s Moro Spanish Film Festival.
Join us for a complimentary glass of Sangria to kick off the celebrations before experiencing this word-of-mouth sensation in its native Spain (also nominated for eight Spanish Academy Awards) starring the superb Candela Peña (Truman, Kiki, Love to Love). ROSA’S WEDDING is a bright and breezy mix of comedy and pathos, anchored by Peña’s memorable and truthful turn.
“A feel-good film par excellence, made with irreproachable political conviction.”
– SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
“One of the most beautiful characters in recent cinema: a real everyday heroine. This luminous film talks about many things, about reconciliation, how little we really listen to each other and how we let ourselves be carried away by the speed and urgency of time in the era that we live. It’s a film of reflection and enjoyment.”

About to turn 45, seamstress Rosa (Peña) works in the wardrobe department of a film production company in Valencia. Besides the pressure of her job, she’s also besieged from all sides by the demands of family members: her widowed dad, Antonio (Ramón Barea), who insists he’s moving in with her; her divorced brother Armando (a scene-stealing Sergi López), who has financial problems; her possibly-alcoholic sister Violeta (Nathalie Poza); and her grown-up daughter Lidia (Paula Usero) who’s living with a musician in Manchester and raising twin infants. Plus, there’s the constant favours for friends and neighbours…
Taken completely for granted and tired of living for others, Rosa retreats to her childhood home in the scenic coastal town of Benicàssim and – much to the consternation of her family – announces her engagement to someone that those around her can’t quite accept or believe!Watch Trailer
