On Thursday, June 16 at 5.00pm AEST, you are cordially invited to witness the love, the food, the music and the fun of FATHER OF THE BRIDE, a modern rom-com starring Gloria Estefan and Andy Garcia premiering On Demand on FOXTEL.

Updated from the timeless classic of the same name and produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, this sparkling story of a family and its unbreakable bonds illustrates the surprising and funny ways the heart can adapt in the name of love. The film also stars Adria Arjona, Isabela Merced, Diego Boneta and Chloe Fineman.

Long-time married couple Billy (Andy Garcia) and Ingrid (Gloria Estefan) are surprised when their eldest daughter Sofia (Adria Arjona) comes home to Miami for a visit. But the surprises just keep coming when she announces a new boyfriend, Adan (Diego Boneta) - who is now her fiancé - and their plans for a quick-turnaround wedding and a new life together in Mexico, where Adan’s family is from.

Old-fashioned Billy is at first opposed to the wedding. A prominent architect and family man, he feels his hard-fought success and dedication to his heritage earn him the right to call the shots. The same could also be said for Adan’s equally headstrong father, Hernan (Pedro Damián), who soon arrives with his own traditions and family pride in tow. With both iron-willed fathers vying to take charge of the festivities, it becomes a prideful game of one-upmanship, as cultures clash, generations take sides and competing traditions collide, as the roller coaster ride of wedding planning races toward the altar.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE is a Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max film, directed by Gaz Alazraki and produced by Oscar winners Plan B Entertainment (Moonlight; 12 Years a Slave; Eat Pray Love). The screenplay is by Matt Lopez, based on the novel by Edward Streeter. The executive producers are Brad Pitt, Andy Garcia, Ted Gidlow and Jesse Ehrman.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE premieres on Thursday, June 16 from 5.00pm AEST On Demand on FOXTEL and on Movies Premiere channel on Monday, June 20 at 8.30pm AEST
