Movie Info

Carol Kane makes one of her earliest screen appearances in the Canadian Wedding in White. Set during World War 2, the film costars Donald Pleasence as Kane's father. The crux of the film concerns Pleasence's feverish efforts to save Carol's good name after she is raped and impregnated by her brother's loutish soldier friend. While it might sound like "Go and never darken my door again!" melodrama, the film is delicately handled, with some particularly poignant scenes between father and daughter. Wedding in White won the Canadian equivalent of the "best picture" Oscar in 1972. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Wedding in White


Out of this commonplace story about ordinary people, the Canadian writer and director William Fruet has fashioned "Wedding in White," a poignant, bitter, sometimes surprisingly funny slice-of-life. It really does recreate its wartime society; everything about it is right: the clothes, the dialog and particularly the prejudices and ignorance.

This movie is very realistic and sad, it's beautifully tragic, and Kane is perfect as the main character. I really liked this movie.

Have a box of tissues. I would never have imagined Carol Kane playing the role she played in this. Unbelievably good. Terrific cast. As I related a real tear jerker.
