Jann Turner, an NYU film grad and a well-regarded novelist, co-wrote and directed this pleasant, intentionally lightweight, South African road-movie romance with a sly integrationist political agenda. A "white wedding" is actually a black wedding with everyone dressed in white, but it doesn't seem that Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi) and Ayanda (Zandile Msutwana) will ever stroll down the aisle. Elvis keeps running into misadventures on the highway to Cape Town, and Ayanda, increasingly annoyed with his tardiness, starts flirting anew with her ex-boyfriend. The screwball strains are predictable, but what makes the movie interesting is how Turner keeps interjecting race into the slight story. There's a flirtation between a cute English lass (Jodie Whittaker) and Elvis's best friend (Rapulana Seiphemo) — will black and white be allowed to kiss? And when our black heroes wander into an Afrikaner rugby bar, where apartheid once ruled, there's a brilliant sequence of comic appropriation in which a brazen Elvis leads a band of confused white separatists in the Boer War anthem.
