"Ceremony," directed by Max Winkler from is own script, follows a young man (Michael Angarano) and his best friend who crash the wedding of a thirysomething woman (Uma Thurman) with whom the young man is infatuated.

Mader plays a married member of Thurman's wedding party who makes overtures toward Angarano.

The movie is shooting in New York, with Darlene Caamano Loquet, Emilio Diez Barroso, Polly Cohen Johnsen and Matthew Spicer producing.

Mader then segues to "Bang," which stars Banderas as a private detective searching for a former stripper who is supposed to exist but no one has ever seen in a mystery connected to a particle collider. She plays a meth addict who works at a medical center pretending to have different diseases for interns to react to.

On "Lost," Mader played anthropologist Charlotte Lewis, who died last season. She next appears on the big screen in "The Men Who Stare at Goats." Mader is repped by Innovative Artists and Mosaic.
