Top End Wedding

So on the surface this looks like a fairly cookie-cutter comedy:  a man and woman decide to get married and then hi-jinx ensued.  We’ve seen that before, right?  Well, not so fast.

I think what surprised me most about the film was the layers that were unexpected.  At first there was the mother-daughter connection but then we began to see the connection back to their ancestry.   While the movie as a whole was very good it was the last twenty minutes or so that really stood out.  I was pleasantly surprised by the movie as a whole.
