  • mpho3's rating of the film White Wedding

    The title refers to a Eurocentric wedding with the white gown as opposed to a more traditional township wedding. What would otherwise be a fairly typical Hollywood-ish prenup hijinx comedy is slightly elevated by the cultural nuances of the South African setting. While I agree it wasn't Oscar worthy, it's nice to see a lighthearted sub-Saharan film for a change.
