‘Mother Of The Bride’ Trailer: Brooke Shields, Benjamin Bratt, & Miranda Cosgrove Star In Netflix Rom-Com Next Month

Rom-com comeback? Maybe on the big screen, but on Netflix they’ve been cranking them out successfully for years. So if there is some kind of rom-com resurgence, we have the streamer to thank for it. And now there’s another on the way that doesn’t skew young like many of them do, but features multiple veterans of the screen including Brooke Shields and Benjamin Bratt.

Mother of the Bride stars Shields as Lana, a mother whose daughter returns from a year abroad in London with news that she’s engaged to be married in Thailand. Things get awkward when it’s discovered the groom-to-be is the son of a man who broke Lana’s heart years ago.

The film is directed by Mark Waters, known for comedies such as Mean Girls and Freaky Friday. Also in the cast are Miranda Cosgrove, Sean Teale, Chad Michael Murray, Rachel Harris, Wilson Cruz, Michael McDonald, and Benjamin Bratt.

Here’s the synopsis: Lana’s daughter Emma returns from abroad and drops a bombshell: she’s getting married. In Thailand. In a month! Things only get worse when Lana learns that the man who captured Emma’s heart is the son of the man who broke hers years ago.

Netflix will premiere Mother of the Bride on May 9th.
