Top End Wedding
This charming, multi-cultural romantic comedy is the latest in Australian cinema’s attempts to depict the growing number of interracial marriages involving Aboriginals and white people. The bride-to-be, an ambitious courtroom lawyer played by the lovely Miranda Tapsell (“The Sapphires”), although estranged from her Aboriginal roots, stops the wedding procedure until her runaway Indigenous mother can be found. She and her bumbling fiancé (Gwilym Lee of “Bohemian Rhapsody”) search the remote Northern Territory, the top center state of Australia and nearby Tiwi Islands, home to a small Aboriginal community. The vivid landscapes complement this winning story of familial bonding as love attempts to find its way. “Top End Wedding” was the second largest grossing film in Australia in 2019.
