The rating does not reflect the film's qualities, the one star rating is for VSC's "30th anniversary edition" DVD.
Good things first - it has a commentary track by lead actress Carol Kane, and I assume we all love to hear her voice. But that's all I like about the DVD.
They claim on the cover that the film was digitally remastered. Orly? The picture looks noisy and grainy like a VHS tape. Even worse: It is presented in 4:3, though it was filmed in widescreen. Hello? It's 2016, not 1997, when people didn't mind these things. I can only recommend to wait for a better (BluRay?) release of this marvellous film.

Amazing Candian film made in 1972 & set in the war,Carol kane is wonderful in her first lead role as the shy naive 16 yr old Jeannie who gets raped by her brothers friend when they are visiting whilst on army leave.She discovers she is pregnant & eventually tells her mother who,shocked & upset,quicky goes on to tell her father who goes berserk hitting Jeannie & blames her instead of the soldier! Her father,filled with shame,plans to send her away,until his friend offers to marry her.......
Beautifully acted & very moving with a truly heartbreaking ending!

HASH(0x958967b0) out of 5 stars A Life Altering Dilemma of a Teen Girl 2 Aug. 2006
By Artist & Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It seems like ancient history today to think that a teenage girl who gets pregnant, especially by rape, should be disgraced for life. Yet, not so long ago that was the prevailing attitude in North America. This story is about one such girl. However, there was one 'respectable' way for a girl to avoid that fate - to marry quickly to make the baby 'legitimate.' Her father, to avoid the shame of a pregnant daughter, comes up with a plan to solve the problem. So, his daughter is faced with the choice of being a lifelong outcast or a marriage that is anything but romantic.

This movie is a five-star portrayal of a girl in those circumstances. [This is the forth film of Carol Kane's eighty or so movie appearances!] The story should provide a good basis for discussion of several issues of concern to teens and to families - how a family should treat a pregnancy resulting from rape - what society's attitude should be toward such children or so-called illegitimate children in general - marrying purely to maintain social status instead of love - a girl marrying an older man, etc. [I would say that the man she married did love her in his own way, kind of like a daughter; however, the girl needed a lot of work to develop real love for him.]

This is a hard movie to find, or it is quite expensive, but it did get the Canadian equivalent of the Best Film 'Oscar' in 1972.

[For another well-done movie, also available on Amazon.com, of a young woman in a similar situation, see the 1993 movie, 'The Ballad of Little Jo.' That is a true story of Josephine Monagan, who in 1866 traveled west after her baby was born and adopted by her married sister.. Jo chose to live as a man, and shocked the community after she died when they learned her secret.]

HASH(0x95896810) out of 5 stars Wedding in white. 14 April 2011
By Steven Balyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
For what was supposed to be a low budget movie, this makes for excellent viewing. This was actually filmed in an older area of Toronto and even the house it was filmed in was original. You cannot match the atmosphere any better.
Excellent period authenticity with performances by all to match.
The plot, incidentally, is not far fetched. Situations such as this one did in fact occur on a regular basis back then and from what I understand this movie is actually based on a true incident.
Great entertainment!

HASH(0x966a4b3c) out of 5 stars Brilliantly Horrifying 27 April 2005
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie chronicles the horror a sweet but rather naive sixteen year old girl experiences when her soldier brother and his friend visit the family. Although some of the characters disgust you, they all seem like real people, not characatures.
