Filmfest DC - The Wedding Party

Run Time: 110 Minutes

THE LIGHTER SIDE

The Wedding Party

 

Kemi Adetiba

Nigeria, 2016

 

Love, laughs, family, intrigue, and a big wedding. Romantic comedies offer particular pleasures, and no one does them like Nollywood: Brighter, more colorful, and often more outrageous than its Hollywood counterparts, this Nigerian romantic comedy is something to behold. Art gallery owner Dunni (Adesua Etomi) is the cherished daughter of Bamidele Coker (Atunyota Akpobome) and his wife, Tunuade (Sola Sobowale). When Dunni and her fiancé Dozie (Banky Wellington) decide to marry, the Cokers plan to throw the wedding of the century. Although Dozie’s parents, Felix (Richard Mofe-Damijo) and Obianuju Onwuka (Ireti Doyle), believe their son is marrying beneath him, for the sake of tradition they leave the big day to the bride's parents. Barely. As the groom faces the return of an ex-girlfriend, the bride confronts wild embarrassments, and village guests topple the parents’ carefully laid plans, the wedding party escalates into pure Lagosian chaos.Toronto International Film Festival
