The Wedding Party
aka Thank God He Met Lizzie
First screened in January 2005
Director: Cherie Nowlan. Cast: Richard Roxburgh, Frances O'Connor, Cate Blanchett, Melissa Ippolito, Elena Pavli, Genevieve Mooy, Michael Ross, Linden Wilkinson, Craig Rasmus, Mary Acres. Screenplay: Alexandra Long.

Twitter Capsule: A slender proposition, but Roxburgh, O'Connor, and Blanchett are all refreshing to behold in non-typecast roles.

VOR:   Certainly got noticed in Australia; am I underselling it? Direct-to-video in US. Perfectly good wedding cake. You won't ask who made it, though.
