Overview

Harry and his much-younger girlfriend surprise their friends one vacation weekend by announcing their desire to marry immediately. As they are visiting a small island village off the coast of west Australia, that is easier said than done. The weekend began with the aforementioned couple and their friends Louise and David sailing out to Rocknest Island to visit their friends Garth, a doctor, and Juliet. The island is truly beautiful, as is the watercolor-like cinematography, and everyone has a good time. It is Emma who drops the bomb, and even Harry is surprised, for he has made no plans for their ceremony. It turns out that neither of the island ministers can do the job on such short notice. Emma then drops another bomb, telling them that she is terminally ill. This galvanizes all to action, and in very little time and with much resourcefulness, the wedding takes place followed by a grand party.

This is a surprisingly involving movie that makes you feel the friendship between six people and the relationship between two of them. One of the friends reveals she is dying of cancer, and the others spring into action to give her the biggest and best wedding anyone ever had! Watching the movie a second time last night, I was reminded of the novel 'Last Things, First Things' which is set on the Greek Islands, involves impending death from cancer and much more. Both manage to encounter their serious subject realisticly without being depressing. In fact, both are emotionally satisfying at the end.
