Helena From the Wedding Directed

Times and Venues:
Upstate Films WOODSTOCK
Newlyweds Alex and Alice are hosting a weekend-long New Year’s Eve party for their closest friends at a remote cabin in the mountains. Any thoughts of a perfect getaway are quickly thrown out the window as newly separated Nick arrives with only a cooler of meat and the news that he and his most recent girlfriend have also called it quits. Don and Lynn show up a few minutes later deep in an argument. Finally, Eve and Steven make it to the cabin with a surprise guest in tow—Eve’s friend Helena.
With tensions running high at the cabin, Alex tries to approach the young and beautiful Helena. When she rebuffs him, Alex seems to forget about his new wife and the life she represents, and instead begins to wallow in the fact that nothing seems to go right for him. As it creeps closer to midnight on New Year’s Eve, we realize that nearly everyone in the group of friends isn’t who they appear to be—deep down, they all are a little lost in the world.
