Second Hand Wedding is a small bittersweet dramatic comedy set in the present day, when Trade Me and E-Bay threaten the God-given right of a firsthand crack at a second-hand bargain. But despite the pressure to move with the times, Jill (Geraldine Brophy) manages to keep the dream alive. That is until she is forced to confront the habits of a lifetime and concede that no bargain is worth her daughter's happiness. The main charactors are based upon the parents of the writer and was mostly film along the Kapiti coast, north of Wellington. Recommended.
