The Wedding Season (2012)

Shani is perfectly happy being single at 32. She's got a good job as an accountant and her own home in Melbourne. But her Sri Lankan mother is desperate to find her a man during the upcoming wedding season - particularly as it is a very auspicious time for her to settle down. Her mother uses astrological charts and iPhone technology to connect her with suitors who are then invited to a meet-and-greet at the family home, with Shani serving up curries dressed in traditional sarees. Her dad just wants to watch the cricket in peace. Meanwhile as her friend Amani struggles with motherhood, Shani literally feels the foundations of her life fall apart. This is a very funny insight into a different culture and includes a glossary at the back to help you out with any unfamiliar terms.
