While audiences are by now familiar with formulas and templates of romantic comedies, sometimes adding a cultural twist can keep things fresh, and certainly, that's what writer/director Ramin Niami is aiming for with "Shirin In Love." Featuring "Homeland" star Nazanin Boniadi (aka Fara Sherazi from season 3), she plays the titular Shirin, a young Iranian-American living in Los Angeles, long engaged to an Iranian plastic surgeon, who breaks the bonds of loyalty and tradition when she starts seeing another man, starting a culture clash. And in this clip from the film, Shirin is caught in bed shortly after her mysterious lover has left, much to the exasperation of her fiancé. Co-starring Riley Smith, Amy Madigan, Maz Jobrani and George Wallace, "Shirin In Love" opens on March 14th. Check out the clip and poster for the film below. »
