What's the most awkward wedding experience you have ever had?
There is nothing worse than showing up at a wedding and finding out you've been assigned to the table reserved for outcasts. You are forced to make awkward, contrived conversations with strangers.
Table 19 is a comedy about wedding reception losers. Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow, and Craig Robinson lead a cast of misfits at the leftover table.
The movie pinpoints the feeling of being stuck with a bunch of strays at a wedding.
Picture this...you're single and stranded at the rejects table at a wedding reception. The table at the very back of the room. Can there be a deeper hell? The near-bathroom territories of Table 19 come pretty close.
Instead of simmering in that hell, you band together and turn the table on the nightmare situation that is.
Eloise (Kendrick), the main character, gathers up the courage to RSVP to a pity wedding invite, especially when she knows that her ex-boyfriend is attending, and is the best man in the wedding. She was dumped by the bride's bother via text, and subsequently removed from her maid-of-honour duties.
On the romance front, Eloise is all of us. We have all been in that awkward situation of events and feelings that occur at a wedding. In the wake of her ex-boyfriends douche-bag move, she still decides to attend the wedding because her good friend is the bride.
She can drown her sorrows in her dessert or make the most out of an awkward situation. By the looks of it, she decides to make the most of it…
Eloise's prospects for the night are a mixed bag. When she arrives at Table 19, she is supposedly hit on by an awkward teenager. However, she finds herself flirting and dancing with another promising man - a tall, handsome, dashing British stranger.
It doesn't end there - she confronts her ex, and then joins forces with the rest of her table to embark on a night that neither of them will ever forget.
The movie is poised to be a nuanced, touching, and playful examination of group dynamics, love, and friendship. Could this be a cult classic like "The Breakfast Club"? … We will have to wait until January 20, 2017 to find out. Table 19 captures the awkwardness of going to a wedding solo. Will you RSVP and watch the movie?

Here's the official synopsis:
"Ex-maid of honour Eloise (Kendrick) -- having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text -- decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend's wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the 'random' table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets (but not before sending something nice off the registry). As everyone's secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. Friendships -- and even a little romance -- can happen under the most unlikely circumstances."
