Inspired by one of Burns’ favorite films, Fellini’s “I Vitellini,” “The Groomsmen” takes place in the days leading up to a wedding that serves as a reunion for five 30-something best friends. The film ponders the question of why these working-class young men have put off the so-called marks of adulthood that the previous generation achieved straight out of high school.
