If you want to see this you should plan on ordering a ticket early online. Seating will most likely be limited. Thanks to Christina for suggesting this. Look for her. Showtime is 1:50. Plan to get there earlier to get a seat.

Die Standesbeamtin (Will You Marry Us?) is a Swiss film that is directed by Micha Lewinsky (In Swiss German with subtitles).

Rahel Hubli works as a civil servant in an idyllic Swiss town. Her personal life is less than idyllic, though, since her husband Thomas spends day and night "at work," and she's too stressed to pay attention to their son Flo. At a bookstore where she's shopping for literature about how to sex up her marriage she runs smack into Ben, her old band mate and the former love of her life. Ben has hit it big in Berlin with a successful pop songwriting career. Turns out he's come back to town to get married to his overbearing movie star girlfriend Tinka. The two celebrities have decided to seek a quiet wedding out of the limelight, just a small ceremony performed by the civil servant at the idyllic town hall. But things get complicated when Rahel realizes her feelings for Ben are stronger than ever, he seems hesitant to tie the know, and she worries about losing it as Tinka starts asking her to handle more and more of the wedding preparations. Actress Marie Leuenberger, channeling Renee Zellweger, is an absolute delight. See WILL YOU MARRY US? now before the inevitable Hollywood remake.
