Utterly charming and unique
13 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To quote another reviewer, this film is a charming must-see.

OK:

* Unique indie film

* Cross-racial and inter-cultural romance

* Romance after all seems lost

* Top-rated stars (Roshan Seth and Carol Kane) at the top of their form

* Funny, charming, sad, bittersweet, meaningful, tongue-in-cheek all at once

What's not to like?

If you love hidden gems, then definitely watch this!

I guarantee you will not be disappointed. This is an intelligent, witty, heartfelt film that is unlike any other I've ever come across.
