Often times while I am cleaning the kitchen I find a good documentary to play on the laptop. A couple of months ago I came across the HBO Documentary 112 Weddings on HBO Go. This was an amazing film.
I watch it again with my husband and we paused and discussed throughout the film. The conversation it evoked between us was amazing. We shared things that we have never shared with anyone or even admitted to ourselves.
I recommend it to all! Whether you have been married for years or you are still single waiting for the one, you can benefit from this movie.
For over twenty years filmmaker Doug Block has had a side business of being a wedding videographer. In this film he follows up with a few of the 112 couples whose special day he has captured over the years. Can you imagine? He had a front view seat to all of these weddings and now 5 years…. 8years…. 20 years later he meets with them a again to talk about there experience thus far (the good and the bad). It even shares the story of 2 couples preparing to get married.
I think there are about 8 couples who are part of this documentary. The couples vary by years married, race, and lifestyle. One couple has a child with special needs, while another couple is battling depression. There are also couples that share why they are no longer married. These couples allowed themselves to be vulnerable and transparent. There is definitely something for everyone to relate to.
Here is the trailer.
