See this feel good movie and leave with a smile on your face and your brain free of damage. A delightful film that you can take your great grandmother. The Northern Territory is truly amazing and the photography in Top end will prove it. All the characters are wonderful. I am not a crier except when ET returned home but Top End brought a tear to my eye. A film you will remember for at least a fortnight. Go and see it.

My childhood in Darwin right there on the big screen with my tidda girlz. Non-Darwin mob may need a translator :-p
Lovable characters but too many side stories and plot points. This makes the film seem rushed and forced. Would have preferred the focus to stay on the mother-father relationship, finding the mum and then reconnecting with the family.
Well if you take a presumed input from Tourism NT, the director and star of The Sapphires, this is exactly what you get. A gentle rolling rom-com with masses of landscape a few laughs and a wedding at the end. Very much a feel good movie.
RomComs are on the rise again with huge successes from films such as LOVE, SIMON and CRAZY RICH ASIANS. TOP END WEDDING is quite similar in tone to CRAZY RICH ASIANS it could have been named CRAZY MIDDLE CLASS AUSTRALIANS and rode some of that crossover success but the film stands on its own and does a bloody good job of it. Full review is now up on Salty Popcorn.
