10 Jun 2017 | 7.30pm - 9.15pmBook Tickets
Truth is stranger than fiction. Ali’s Wedding is based on the real-life experience of lead actor Osamah Sami, whose arranged marriage lasted less than two hours. The smart screenplay by Sami and Andrew Knight (Hacksaw Ridge, Rake, Jack Irish) tells a humorous, authentic and poignant tale about family life in multicultural Australia. Stylishly directed by Jeffrey Walker (Modern Family, Angry Boys), the film boasts a terrific cast including Don Hany as Ali’s father and delightful newcomer Helana Sawires as Dianne, the Lebanese-Australian medical student who sends Ali’s heartbeat racing. The time is right for a feelgood winner like Ali’s Wedding.
