Editorial – Wokie dokey

Last Thursday’s Council meeting was an example of when a good idea gets kiboshed because the people proposing the idea are considered crazy conspiracy theorists.

 

In a well-worn Hollywood trope, long-time divorced couple David and Georgia Cotton feel the need to step in when their daughter decides to get married. It seems that their daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) couldn’t possibly know what she is doing, preparing to walk down the aisle with a man she has just met, and mum and dad decide to team up and sabotage the impending wedding, which will be held in a tropical paradise.

From the first few moments of being seated next to each other on the plane, trying to trick Lily out of getting married and even stealing the wedding rings, to the film’s not-too-surprising ending, David (George Clooney) and Georgia (Julia Roberts) snip and snipe at each other about everything from where they are sitting to what they are drinking.

The setting of Bali certainly makes for paradisiacal whimsy and you might feel like a drinking a piña colada as you watch this movie dream couple try to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago.

Now showing at Ballina Fair Cinema and Palace Cinema, Byron Bay.
