Released Fri 11 Feb, 2022
Kat Valdez is half of the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth with hot new music supernova Bastian. As Kat and Bastian’s inescapable hit single, “Marry Me,” climbs the charts, theyʼre about to be wed before an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will streamed across media platforms.
Divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert has been dragged to the concert by his daughter, Lou, and his best friend. When, seconds before the ceremony, Kat learns that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life turns downward as she has a meltdown on stage, questioning love, truth, and loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger—a face in the crowd.
If what she knows lets her down, then perhaps what she doesnʼt know is the answer – in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive rebound evolves into an unexpected romance. But, as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?
Packed with original songs by Jennifer Lopez and global Latin music star Maluma, ‘Marry Me’ features Lopez starring as musical superstar Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as math teacher Charlie Gilbert—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other. An unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers, ‘Marry Me’ is a modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.
