Trivia

This Australian film follows the same lead male casting model of the director's earlier successful movie 'The Sapphires' (2012) by casting an imported British actor in the leading man role. In 'The Sapphires' (2012), it was Irish actor Chris O'Dowd, whilst in 'Top End Wedding' (2019), it is English actor Gwilym Lee. See more »

Goofs

At the fuel pump they show Trevor's 4wd being filled with diesel, when the callouts visible on the vehicle indicate it is a '3500 v6', the petrol/gas engine. Later in the film that same 'diesel' 4wd is put out of action when Ned puts petrol/gas in it. See more »

Well-made Aussie rom-com
5 May 2019 | by gavinp9See all my reviews

'Top End Wedding' is from the director of 'The Sapphires' and also stars Tapsell, this time as Lauren, an up-&-coming lawyer from Adelaide. She gets engaged to Ned (Lee), which sets in motion a whirlwind trip to Darwin to try and pull together a wedding in 10 days before she's required back at work, thanks to her demanding boss Ms Hampton (Fox).

Back in Darwin, we meet Lauren's Dad, Trevor (Higginson) and the twist that her Mum, Daphne (Yovich), has left to find her roots. This "mystery" forces Lauren and Ned on a roadtrip to find her, and allows us to see the spectacular scenery in Kakadu and Katherine, as well as eventually, the Tiwi Islands. There's plenty of funny moments along the way and interesting characters.

As well as the great settings, there's also some emotional reunions for Lauren and Daphne with their people and country on the Tiwi Islands - it's all handled really well and is very touching. It's fantastic to see Aboriginal actors and Australian settings on film - I wish there was more. Overall, a lovely film in terms of story, music, characters and settings.
