Wedding Bells at Filmfest D.C.
Apartheid meets bachelor parties in White Wedding
It's time again for Filmfest DC,the District's annual international film festival. This year—the festival's 24th—I reviewed three films that center on getting hitched. There's White Wedding, a film about wedding planning and post-Apartheid politics, in that order, from South Africa; Will You Marry Us?, a love affair between believably attractive but commitment-phobic aging indie rockers, out of Switzerland; and Silent Wedding, a magical-realist anti-communist romp by way of Romania. Romanian films are, apparently, a theme this year! (Click through for the full list of CP reviews).
