Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

Budgets don’t matter when a film connects with an audience, and this low-budget romantic comedy resonated so well it hit number one at the box office and became the top-grossing British picture ever as of its release date. It all grew out of a chance encounter screenwriter Richard Curtis had at a wedding. He hit it off with a young woman but declined to spend the night with her. That set off a series of what-ifs in his mind that became the tale of a man (Hugh Grant) who meets and falls for a woman (Andie MacDowell) at a wedding but can never seem to connect with her. The film made Grant a star and put him, Curtis, and director Mike Newell on the A list.
