Gloria Estefan returns to the cinema with Diego Boneta and Arjona’s daughter

The big screen has had three films named Father of the Bride, but there’s something very special about the recent comedy, which marks Gloria Estefan’s return to cinema. “El Padre de la Novia” stars Latino actors and is based on an American Latino family.

In addition to the mother of the family, played by Cuban-American Estefan, there is the father, also Cuban, Andy García. The bride planning her big day is Puerto Rican-Guatemalan actress Adria Arjona, daughter of singer Ricardo Arjona. And since there is no wedding without the charming groom, this will be the Mexican Diego Boneta.

“We celebrate the extended family in Latino cultures,” Estefan said in a recent interview. “None of the other films I can remember having had … cousins, grandparents, uncles, aunts. They’re a big part of the movie, our celebration of food and music, and they tend to go together so well together and with family — love, family, you know, and mutual support. Things like that are transmitted in Latin culture, no matter where you come from.” Estefan added that anyone who sees the film can relate to it, regardless of their background, because it addresses human and universal themes. “It’s about the children leaving the nest, about the difficulties that parents have in letting them go, about the children who are now defying tradition and wanting to do things their way,” he added. Where can you see “The Father of the Bride”? Father of the Bride is available to stream on HBO Max this Thursday.

The film is directed by Gaz Alazraki and was shot in Atlanta. Its eponymous predecessors appeared in: 1950, starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor as the father who must reluctantly accept that his daughter has grown while planning her marriage; and the second from 1991, starring Steve Martin as the patriarch, Diane Keaton as his wife, and Kimberly Williams as their daughter. The premise of all three films is the same, although it’s more than a “remake” for its new cast. The film is a modern take on a young woman’s marriage from her home and the way the family gets involved. “Father of the Bride” is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), with brief salacious content that may be inappropriate for children under 13. Also playing are Isabela Merced, Ruben Rabasa, Chloe Fineman, Pedro Damián, Enrique Murciano, Macarena Achaga and Ana Fabrega.
