When most people think "romantic comedy", they think of Drew Barrymore or Meg Ryan on a fabulous adventure with a Tom Hanks-type dreamboat, somewhere in America.

They're certainly not thinking of an Aboriginal woman in the outback of Australia. And that's the problem.

That's what Australian star Miranda Tapsell set out to change with her new film, Top End Wedding, that she wrote, produced and stars in.

The film follows Tapsell's character, Lauren, as she introduces her British beau, Ned, to the harsh Aussie outback and all the family and escapades that come along with it.
