Heartfelt, Intelligent, Cross-Cultural RomCom

Nov 3, 2017 @ 6:30 pm  —  Nov 3, 2017 @ 9:30pm

Funny, heartfelt, and intelligent, this film uses its appealing leads and cross-cultural themes to prove the standard romcom formula still has some fresh angles left to explore.

The story of a Pakistan-born comedian, who connects with an American grad student for what they thought would be just a one-night stand. It blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected by his traditional Muslim parents.

When E. is beset with a mystery illness, it forces K. to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.

“…touching and perceptive…” “…a lot of charm…” “…big heart and shows there are still corners left to explore in romantic comedies; it just takes someone willing to find them.”
“There is a real dramatic streak throughout the film, but its real strength lies in being at once uproariously funny and endlessly charming.”
