An excellent film about life and life.
17 April 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Wedding Gift" tells of a heroic couple's coming to grips with a crippling disease which slowly erodes the wife's health and stumps medical professionals. Believing her death to be imminent and out of love for her husband, the wife prearranges a replacement for herself. "TWG" is a well assembled, scripted, and acted British film with the look of an 8mm shoot based on a true story of a victim of a mysterious affliction which has since come to be known as chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome. Not a downer flick, "TWG" is full of life and humor and an excellent watch for anyone, especially those with an affinity for British films.
