A classic case of the little movie that could, Second-Hand Wedding is a feel good tale of garage sales and ties that bind. Worried that her mother’s zeal for bargains could ruin her big day, Cheryl (Holly Shanahan) delays unveiling her wedding plans. When Mum (Geraldine Brophy) finds out the information second-hand, she doesn't react well. Both actors won NZ Film and TV Awards for their work, and the Kapiti Coast-set film was a bonafide Kiwi hit: breaking out from its independently made origins, it spent time on the top 10 list for Kiwi films at the local box office.
That boy really needs that Balinese Lady.– Muffy (Tina Regtien) feels sorry for disappointed bargain hunter Steve (Jason Whyte)
