My Brother’s Wedding is a tragic comedy that takes place in South Central Los Angeles. Pierce Mundy works at his parents’ South Central dry cleaners with no prospects for the future and his childhood buddies in prison or dead. With his best friend just getting out of jail and his brother busy planning a wedding to a snooty upper-middle-class woman, Pierce navigates his conflicting obligations while trying to figure out what he really wants in life. He has a distinct romantic notion about life in the ghetto and yet, in spite of his naive sensitivity, he is given the task of being his brother’s keeper. (Digital presentation.)
