A glamorous American movie star wants to keep the press away from her wedding, but the elaborate charade she devises could wind up ruining everything in the sweet and irresistible romantic comedy THE DECOY BRIDE, which will be released on high-definition Blu-ray and DVD from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on June 26, 2012, with SRPs, respectively, of $29.98 and $24.98.
When the wedding plans of internationally famous Hollywood film star Lara (Alice Eve, Men in Black III, The Raven, Sex and the City 2) and English author James (David Tennant, Doctor Who, Fright Night) are sabotaged by a paparazzo, the couple decides to relocate the event to the remote Scottish island of Hegg.
However, dilapidated buildings and greedy islanders are the least of the problems that the wedding party and their Hollywood entourage have to deal with, as Marco (Federico Castelluccio, The Sopranos), the ingenious paparazzo, tracks them down in his mission to photograph the celebrity wedding of the year. Lara and James decide to take even more drastic measures to ensure their privacy.
They approach local girl Katie (Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the upcoming Anna Karenina) to have her act as a decoy bride to lure the press off the trail. Katie is in the dumps after a romantic setback and she needs the money, so she agrees to the oddball arrangement. But when poor Katie meets suave James, sparks fly, dresses get ruined and suddenly love gets complicated.
Also featuring Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’s Diary) and a stunning, picture postcard setting, DECOY BRIDE is a charming romantic comedy about the pratfalls of finding true love. The Hollywood Reporter said, “Kelly Macdonald’s performance … brings humor and warmth to the movie.”
