My Wedding and Other Secrets: L.A. Premiere
Screening on Friday, September 30th at 9:30 PM.
Final Draft and Bigfoot present the Los Angeles Premiere of MY WEDDING AND OTHER SECRETS (2011, South Pacific Pictures, 88 min., New Zealand).
An irresistible and unashamed chick-flick, director/writer Roseanne Liang’s delightful romantic comedy revolves around a geeky Chinese girl, Emily (Michelle Ang) who wants to make martial arts movies, and the tall, lanky New Zealand boy, James (Matt Whelan) she unexpectedly falls for. The Big Problem is her tradition-bound physician father and house-wife mother, expatriates who’ve brought their daughter to New Zealand for a better life – but never expected her to marry a non-Chinese. Loosely adapted from director Liang’s 2005 autobiographical doc BANANA IN A NUTSHELL, this is a lovely gem in the vein of Down Under comedies like MURIEL’S WEDDING.
“The perfectly cast leads are delightfully convincing as they share a first kiss … a winning combo of laugh-out-loud humor and genuinely touching heartache” – Richard Kuipers
