But some of my best friends are Lebanese!
The absolutely gorgeous Indian actress Lisa Ray (Vancouver critics named her Best Actress for Water) plays Tala, an upper class Jordanian of Palestinian origin, whose family lives in London, and who is about to get married.
She meets Leyla, played by Sheetal Sheth, the first Indian-American actress to appear in Maxim. She plays an Indian Muslim who also lives in London.
Clearly, the casting of the leads is meant to appeal to audiences that wouldn’t normally watch a lesbian film, even one that is billed as a romantic comedy. They are both accomplished actresses, but they are also very attractive.
Not only do we get a film about becoming aware of one’s sexual identity, but one about Arabs and Jews, Christians and Muslims, and, most importantly, family and acceptance.
Leyla tells her parents that she is gay. Her mother flips out, but her father is extremely supportive. Tala calls off, what is it her 5th, wedding, but does not immediately tell why. The family is used to her changing her mind at the last minute.
When she does, the maid (Nina Wadia) does a little dance, as the mother treats her so badly that she spits in her antacid when she brings it.
You knew how it was going to end, but the journey was a real pleasure.
It’s PG-13, so there won’t be any nudity, just kissing and touching.
Waste of a good story
Only one thing which was right for this movie was its story. Except that, everything was crap. Terrible screenplay. It could have been much better in the same budget. Many scenes don’t seem realistic to me, eg. Tala and Leyla first meeting scene, tennis court scene, and changing room scene after the tennis court one. Terrible acting, or I should say actors are not pushed enough making it to immature direction. They could have been asked to give a retake. Characters are not developed well. Viewer is not able to feel for the character. Music was crap. It was unable to present the emotion of the scenes. Background score is over dramatic. Editing is clumsy. Overall, it is better to skip it, not worth of your hour and a half.
