In this merry movie of matrimony — based on the hit off-Broadway play — happily engaged Antonio brings fiancé Paulo to the exquisite old Italian village of his birth. Antonio wants to reveal his sexuality to his headstrong parents — and to have them accept Paulo into the family — so he sets out on a quest to make a city founded on religious tradition understand that love is love. Although Antonio’s mother quickly embraces the marriage, his father — who’s also the town’s mayor — is much more reluctant. Further complicating matters, Paolo is long estranged from his conservative mother, but a condition of the marriage is that she attend the wedding. Adding some wacky roommates to the comedic menu, the film serves up a wedding banquet filled with hilarity and hijinks.
