Mini Review - Ali's Wedding

Ali's Wedding (out Aug 31) is based on actual events and is an Aussie comedy about a young Muslim man who lies about his exam grades to impress his father and the tight-knit community. It sets in motion a series of events that are funny, awkward and heartfelt. A few elements are rushed (such as a trip to the US) but this is one of the year's best Australian films. Grade: B+.
