Comedy drama directed by Jeffrey Blitz and written by Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass. The story follows Eloise (Anna Kendrick), who was supposed to be the maid of honor at a wedding with her boyfriend serving as the best man. However, she’s relieved of her duties after she’s is unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend, but Eloise decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend’s wedding anyway.
When she turns up at the wedding she finds herself seated at the ‘random’ table 19 in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, who don’t really fit in at any of the other tables. 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.
