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).
