Wayne Blair's Top End Wedding is a conventional crowd-pleasing getting married comedy with some surprisingly profound insights about how easy it is to lose ties to your culture when it's not the dominant one.
Top End Wedding is uplifting, and offered me something I had not experienced before as a viewer in a mainstream theatre - the chance to see First Nations people, relationships, and culture presented from a position of strength and normality.
Sadly, for a film purporting to be a rom-com there are just too many awkward scenes, implausible romantic interludes and just not enough laughs...the story is pitted with inconsistencies and scenes that don't make emotional sense.
The tone is not permitted to become too serious and the feelgood ending is never in doubt. We can also be assured that Blair is going to harness all of the Territory's most spectacular features and show them at their most beguiling.
