Hit Pasifika comedy Sione's Wedding follows four 30-something guys, on a mission to find a girlfriend before their best friend's wedding. Through their bumbling efforts at romance, the film captures the colour and humour of the Samoan community in Auckland, the world's largest Polynesian city. The breakthrough Pasifika-Kiwi movie was a major hit on its March 2006 Kiwi release. Oscar Kightley (who plays the romantically inept Albert) wrote the script with James Griffin. Joining Kightley on-screen are fellow Naked Samoans Shimpal Lelisi, Robbie Magasiva and Iaheto Ah Hi. Read more about Sione's Wedding here.
