The Press Reviews

  • Blair's direction demonstrates significant comedic flair - there are many laugh-out-loud moments - even if the script's scruffy elements cramp his style a little. Full Review

  • ...Top End Wedding is much, much more than just a fizzy, frolicking romantic comedy, though it's certainly that too. Full Review

  • The traditional Tiwi love song heard in the final scenes and the joyous faces of the locals - mixing trained actors with nonprofessionals - make the destination warmly satisfying, even if it's sometimes a rough ride getting there. Full Review

  • This crowd-pleaser fits the wedding film mould, largely compiled from recognisable parts and adhering to a familiar template. Yet It does, however, build charmingly and convincingly towards a well-earned emotional payoff. Full Review

  • "Top End Wedding" strains for broad farce in its tonally yo-yoing first half, before relaxing into a gentler, more poignant tale of familial bonding as the forestalled but inevitable nuptials approach. Full Review

  • Top End Wedding, a tale of cultural identity and healing, was something of a passion for project for Tapsell, and in the end, that genuine fervour shines through. Full Review

  • The tone is not permitted to become too serious and the feelgood ending is never in doubt. We can also be assured that Blair is going to harness all of the Territory's most spectacular features and show them at their most beguiling. Full Review
