My Wedding and Other Secrets

Film (Trailer, Excerpts, and Extras) – 2011

PG
Parental Guidance

Emily Chu (award-winner Michelle Ang) is a young ‘banana’ (yellow on the outside, white on the inside) hoping to conceal a cross-cultural romance from her prudish Chinese parents in this romantic dramedy. Director Roseanne Liang’s feature debut draws on her autobiographical ‘video diary’ Banana in a Nutshell, which screened at the 2005 NZ International Film Festival. In the audience was producer John Barnett, who immediately offered to fund an adaptation. On its March 2010 release My Wedding gained several five star reviews, and strong box office.

It’s a true story. Mostly. How do I know? Because that girl was sort of ... well, me.
– Writer/director Roseanne Liang
