Synopsis / Plot
The film, White Night Wedding tells, the story of Jon, a university teacher who is trying to figure out his life and himself during one bright summer night in the island of Flatey, which lies in Breidafjordur in west Iceland. White Night Wedding, or Brudguminn in Icelandic, is a dramedy about the joy of life and search for happiness, although with bittersweet undertones, for there is never light without some streaks of shadow.

The biggest hit in Iceland in 2008, White Night Wedding is a contemporary story loosely based on Anton Chekhov's play Ivanov. It was developed simultaneously for stage and screen, with the same cast of nine top Icelandic actors including Hilmir Snær Guðnason (The Quiet Storm), Margrét Vilhjálmsdóttir (Thicker than Water), and Ólafur Egil Egilsson, who co-wrote the script with Kormákur.

Iceland's official entry for the 2009 foreign-language Oscar.
