Aug. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Island Film Group today announced that its independent feature film "4 Wedding Planners" - formerly known as “KNOTS” and directed by Michael Kang ("The Motel" and "West 32nd") and written by and starring Kimberly-Rose Wolter - is now available via Video On Demand throughout the United States and Canada and widely through online media outlets, such as iTunes and Amazon. Also starring Illeana Douglas ("Cape Fear" and television's "Entourage"), Sung Kang ("The Fast & The Furious"), Mia Riverton ("Red Doors") and Janel Parrish ("Bratz: The Movie" and television's "Pretty Little Liars"), "4 Wedding Planners" is a witty take on the lives and loves of a family of Honolulu wedding planners.

Island Film Group's Roy Tjioe and Ricardo Galindez – the same team that produced/ executive produced independent feature films such as "Princess Ka`iulani," "Soul Surfer," as well as television's "Beyond the Break" – played an instrumental role in bringing the filming of "4 Wedding Planners" to locations across Oahu. "4 Wedding Planners" also features an original score by renowned ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro and showcases songs by such beloved Hawaii-based artists as Na Leo Pilimehana, John Cruz, Anuhea, Makana, Paula Fuga, Olomana, Willie K, Kepa Kruse and Eric Gilliom.

“We’re proud to present another film about Hawaii and life in the islands," said Roy Tjioe, principal, Island Film Group. "'4 Wedding Planners' takes a light hearted look at a wedding planning business run by a mom and three hapa daughters from three different dads, focusing on their relationships with each other and the men in their lives. We’re sure it will resonate with audiences everywhere and especially among local folks."

Wolter, who made her writing debut with the feature film "Tre," was born and raised in Manoa, just outside Honolulu. A graduate of Hawaii's Mid-Pacific Institute (Mid-Pac), Wolter was a member of their first graduating class to complete the Mid-Pacific School of the Arts program, where she took her first writing class. Wolter attended the University of Hawaii and went on to complete her education at the University of Southern California. She was joined on the "4 Wedding Planners" set by fellow Hawaii-born cast-mate Janel Parrish in this local production that shares an international message with wry humor and Island-style charm.

"4 Wedding Planners" - Plot Synopsis
In the UN-romantic comedy, “4 Wedding Planners,” stars matriarch Miriam (Illeana Douglas) is three times divorced, with one daughter born from each husband. What ensues is a recipe for comical family strife as the daughters finally reach the breaking point of addressing feelings repressed thanks to mom’s poor choices in men.

When eldest daughter Lily (Kimberly Rose-Wolter) rejects her boyfriend’s marriage proposal, she decides to return home to Hawaii for family support. It turns out the family is having troubles of their own – their wedding planning business is being run into the ground by Lily’s two half-sisters Twinny (Mia Riverton) and Hoku (Janel Parrish). It’s left to Lily to get things on the right track. If things couldn’t get worse, Lily’s ex-boyfriend Kai (Sung Kang) enters the picture, as does a surprise reveal that makes reconciliation no easy matter.

With "4 Wedding Planners" director Michael Kang ("The Motel," "West 32nd") vibrantly interweaves multiple storylines together in this brisk, delightful film. As the title "KNOTS" implies, no family is too non-traditional, no relationship too unexpected, for the ties that bind. – Eric Lallana, San Diego Asian Film Foundation.
