Storyline

The loyal, committed and very decent Elvis leaves Johannesburg to pick up his best friend and best man Tumi in Durban. The two will then journey on to Cape Town to begin rehearsals for Elvis's wedding to the beautiful Ayanda. But things don't always go according to plan. An appealing, feel-good movie about love, commitment, intimacy and friendship and the host of maddening obstacles that can get in the way of a happy ending. Written by The Film Catalogue

Sweet, witty film that shows there is a place for everyone in South Africa.
21 May 2009 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

WHITE WEDDING with Kenneth Nkosi, Rapulana Seiphemo, Jodie Whittaker, Zandile Msutwana and Marcel van Heerden, directed by Jann Turner.

Cinema-goers looking for a funny, big-hearted comedy with characters one can relate to, will enjoy Jann Turner's rather delightful South African film. A road trip movie made on a budget of R6 million, it tells the story of the down-to-earth Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi) who is about to be married. He catches a bus from Johannesburg to Durban where he meets up with his best man, Tumi ("Jerusalema" star, Rapulana Seiphemo). From here the two guys must travel to Cape Town where the lovely Ayunda (Zandile Msutwana) is anxiously awaiting their arrival. Of course nothing goes right on the long journey and when the boys get lost in the Eastern Cape and reluctantly allow British visitor Rose (Jodie Whittaker, who starred opposite Peter 'O Toole in "Venus") to join them, it seems as if their problems can only get worse. Can they make it to the wedding on time? With a splendid leading man turn from the lovable, hilarious Nkosi (he played the cooked lawyer in "Jerusalema"), a warm and winning script (by Seiphemo, Turner and Nkosi) and plenty of romance to go with the laughs, this feel-good comedy hits the spot. "White Wedding" is a sweet, witty film that shows there is a place for everyone in South Africa. Even the old-school Afrikaners have hearts of gold.

MY RATING: 6 out of 10.
