A young man wants a second chance at love, though the object of his affection isn't sure there was ever any love in the first place in this independent comedy. Sam (Michael Angarano) is a relentlessly confident would-be author in his mid-twenties who stumbled into a short-term relationship with Zoe (Uma Thurman), a beautiful woman in her late thirties with a bad habit of dating men who aren't right for her. While Zoe is very much over Sam, he's convinced they were truly in love, so he's upset to learn she's engaged to marry Whit Coutell (Lee Pace), a successful but colossally arrogant director of wildlife documentaries. Sam wants another chance with Zoe, so he persuades his best friend, Marshall (Reece Thompson), to join him for a trip to Long Island, where they'll hang out with some of their buddies. What Sam really has in mind, though, is to crash Zoe and Whit's weekend-long wedding festivities and convince her that he's the right man for her. However, Zoe's immediate reaction suggests that persuading her to leave Whit for Sam is going to be a very tough sell. Ceremony was the first feature film from writer and director Max Winkler, son of actor Henry Winkler.
