  • 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.

  • 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.

  • "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.

  • The first hour of Top End Wedding can be downright annoying in its simplicity and bad screenwriting.

  • 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.

  • Top End Wedding is uplifting, and offered me something I had not experienced before as a viewer in a mainstream theatre - the chance to see First Nations people, relationships, and culture presented from a position of strength and normality.
