It’s a bit late now but a couple of weekends ago my girlfriend and I went to see a new Brit flick, Confetti, at the cinema.
The film follows three couples as they attempt to win a magazine competition for the most unusual wedding. The movie starts as the couple are being picked, and follows them through the preparation onto the wedding itself. The best wedding gets to win a house worth lot’s of money.
Some of you, Brits especially, will at least recognise members of the cast, even if you don’t know their names. The best known (in my mind) being the previously mentioned Martin Freeman, and Jimmy Carr. However the stars of the show are the wedding planners
Apparently the film was shot with lots of improvisation, a lot of the actors had comedy backgrounds and were simply told roughly where to go with the story. This works incredibly well, with the conversations coming across surprisingly naturally.
Despite a number of recognisable, incredibly funny, comedy actors the stars of the show were undoubtedly the gay wedding planners played by Vincent Franklin and Jason Watkins. They steal pretty much every scene they are in and are worth the price of the cinema ticket on their own.
Unfortunately we caught the film towards the end of it’s run so it’s unlikely you will find it in a cinema but it’s a very nice little film and well worth a rental when it comes out on dvd.
Watch out for the dangly bits though, there are quite a few of them. Most notably riding a bike and playing badminton.
