I saw this wee kiwi flick on Friday, and was surprised that roleplaying played a prominent part. The story is about a geeky Chinese girl who falls in love with a Dungeons & Dragons loving white boy. Roleplaying is often in the background (flashes to the white boy and his flatmates gaming around a table, the girl lying in bed toying with D&D miniatures) and occasionally in the foreground (the girl attempting to bond with the flatmates by playing a game and getting the rules confused while her character tries to cast magic missile).

Apart from the gaming, it is also a pretty fine film. I see the Dom-Post and the Herald both gave it 5 stars. I am not sure if it is THAT good, but I did really enjoy it.

Yeah, I wondered how heavily the D&D stuff would be used here. The filmmaker, she is a gamer herself.

Is "My Wedding and Other Secrets" the name of it?
