1991’s Father of the Bride is a movie that takes place over a relatively succinct timeframe, but in telling its story, it also gives viewers lots of clues about the events that happened before the movie that led to the many hijinks and tearjerking moments.
Around 25 years before the action of the film, George and Nina Banks (Steve Martin and Diane Keaton) relocate to San Marino, California. A few years later, they have their daughter, Annie (Kimberly Williams). Around that time, George also buys his one and only tuxedo. Many years later, he tries to wear the tux to Annie’s wedding, but realizes that it no longer fits.
When Annie enters elementary school, the family moves into a house on 24 Maple Drive, where George and Nina still live. When Annie is around ten years old, the family becomes regulars at a local BBQ restaurant called the Steak Pit,
A 36-year-old Dalit AIADMK MLA, A Prabhu from Tamil Nadu’s Kallkurichi district, married his partner S 19-year-old Soundharya, a Brahmin, on Monday.
