Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
The Wedding Gift
Critics across America loved THE WEDDING GIFT, praising its wry wit and heartfelt performances. It's the inspirational story of a remarkable couple, Deric and Diana (Academy Award(R)-winner Jim Broadbent -- Best Supporting Actor, IRIS, 2001; GANGS OF NEW YORK, MOULIN ROUGE and Julie Walters -- HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS), who share their lives in perfect harmony, amusing each other with good humor as they face Diana's failing health. As a final act of affection for Deric, Diana orchestrates a gift of love in its purest and deepest form -- by secretly setting him up with another woman!
