The Wedding (1998)


Miniseries/Drama. Shelby (Halle Berry) returns home to 'The Oval' to wed her white fiance, Meade Howell (Eric Thal). They are not readily accepted by her mother, but in the end she understands. Shelby later meets Lute McNeil (Carl Lumbly) and questions her marrying Meade. After a racially induced incident at a local restaurant, Shelby confesses to Meade that she doesn't want to spend the rest of her life defending their relationship and asks him to give her time. Meanwhile, Shelby's mother Corrine (Lynn Whitfield) is battling her own demons within her marriage. With flashbacks the viewer sees that her husband Clark married her not in love, but for looks.

She burns the tickets in the bathtub and confronts him with her true feeling about their marriage later in the film. Director: Charles Burnett. Writers: Dorothy West & Lisa Jones.
