About the Movie
Nick and Mary have saved themselves for marriage, even though they will only have one night together before Nick deploys to Afghanistan. On the wedding night they accidentally lock themselves out of their cabin and end up on a wild adventure. All they want is to find a place to consummate their marriage in peace, but everything they do seems to push them further away. And things get far worse when their family members get involved. Nick's brother is more interested in making funny web videos than helping them, and Mary's father believes the night's events are a sign from God that they should not be together. And then a mysterious visitor from Scotland drags the poor couple into a mission of his own. There's tension all around as Nick and Mary deal with things they don't want to deal with in hopes that they can do what they want to do before the night ends. Directed by Amazon Studios Award Winning Filmmaker Matthew Wilson, "The Virgins" features a cast of rising stars including Sonya Davis (NBC's "Grimm"), Conner Marx ("Lucky Them"), and British theater actor Phillip Keiman. They saved themselves for the wedding night, and now they'll have to save themselves from the wedding night. The two people who did everything right are about to have everything go wrong. A comedy about waiting and waiting and waiting some more.
This film is a delightful, feel good comedy which takes a look at something out of the ordinary. With a perfectly balanced supporting cast, the two young leads guide us through their frustrations and desparations at everything fate throws at them , all in one fraught night. So if you're looking for something funny, new and refreshing, you've found it!
An Authentic, Humorous, Satisfying Adventure
A truly unique movie is hard to come by. So many movies currently out offer rehashed, predictable, unimaginative, or just adaptation straight-from-the-book (or comic). The others are typically so dark, disturbing, dumbed-down, exploitive, or foul that one feels like their rubber-necking at a traffic accident rather than wrapped into a good storyline. While at first glance The Virgins assumes a knock-off attempt of a Judd Apatow movie. First-time filmmaker Matt Wilson's virtuously modest characters and genuine charism quickly shine through as something different. Working with a small budget offers some major challenges to filmmaking, so indie films often rely on artistic obscurity, but you won't find anything here other than honest, imaginative, real-life-situational storytelling. While characters awkward purity set them up to be easy targets for audience hate and ridicule, some sort of long-lost intrinsic innocence was awoken mid-way in to the film for me. I found myself reluctantly warming to the couples pursuit to honor their beliefs and begin a marriage under a desire that exists outside of their flesh (while continuously bringing us back to that all-natural desire to get it on). There are just enough awkwardly funny moments, odd characters, and strangely believable situations to continue moving the plot forward without deviating from that one true-to-life objective in mind. The Virgins takes a while to reach a climax, delaying again and again, then finally offering only a minor amount of crescendo... Yet, I found myself getting up the next morning and feeling a sense of satisfaction from the strange and unique adventure that my first experience with The Virgins had been. Maybe I'll even jump in the sack and give it another go now that it's available on iTunes.
A feel good movie for those who may or may not understand the struggle of waiting to consumate until the night of their marrige. The grandfather is my favorite character. He is a important part to the plot, and has a few funny lines along the way. Under Matt's budget he is limited, but under his circumstance I am truly impressed with this film. Nice work Mr. Wilson.
