The shooting of “In-laws 2”, a film directed by Kalina Alabrudzińska, has just ended. It is a funny and ironic story about a couple who has been married for 30 years, about the generation gaps in relationships, which still seem to be a taboo topic, and about whether it is a good idea to marry at all. Maja Ostaszewska, Izabela Kuna and Adam Woronowicz will meet on the set once again. The cast was joined by Eryk Kulm Jr.
Will the couple get married this time? Weronika and Łukasz – a would-be bride and groom from the first film – decide to give themselves a second chance and invite their family to the wedding and the reception, which will take place in a seaside town. Among the invited guests, the viewers will recognise well-known characters, including: Wanda (Izabela Kuna) and Tadeusz (Adam Woronowicz) with their dog, Mirelka, and also a divorcee, Małgorzata (Maja Ostaszewska), accompanied by… her much younger partner, Jan (Eryk Kulm Jr), and her mother (Ewa Dałkowska). The sea, drinks and nude sunbathers make the family members of the bride and groom more open and ready to shed their masks.
“In-laws 2” is a continuation of “In-laws” – a critically acclaimed comedy hit appreciated also by the viewers. The screenplay of the film was written by Marek Modzelewski, who was also the screenwriter for the first part of the series. This part, however, was directed by Kalina Alabrudzińska, who comments on her participation in the project as follows:
– I was laughing so much while reading the screenplay. I really liked the direction in which the entire story was heading. I also really enjoyed the thought of working once again with Iza Kuna, Maja Ostaszewska and Adam Woronowicz. I felt that directing “In-laws 2” would give me an opportunity to create a really funny comedy that, at the same time, could be very moving.
The producer of the film is AKSON STUDIO. The co-producers are TVN Warner Bros, Discovery and NEXT FILM. The film will be distributed in Poland by NEXT FILM.
The film was shot in Poland with the financial support granted under the act on the financial supporting of audiovisual productions by the Polish Film Institute using the funds of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
The cinema premiere of “In-laws 2” is scheduled for 2023.
