Storyline

Soon to be 21 year old Helen Andritis is a consummate tennis player, being raised by her embarrassing traditional Greek grandmother. All Helen wants to do is win the tennis championships, but all her grandmother wants is for Helen to find a nice Greek boyfriend, like Jimmy Koutella, who is Helen's childhood crush. But Helen (who is still a virgin) can't even muster the nerve to talk coherently in his presence, despite his mother and her grandmother's match-making endeavors. Nor does she really think he's that interested. Not a day goes by when she doesn't wish she looked just like one of her classmates, Stephanie V, a beautiful Eurasian model who appears on the cover of every magazine, and who plays tennis like a pro. This tale takes us through the trials, traumas, and romances of 3 very different young women being raised by their immigrant families. It's fun, it's crazy, it's serious. It will make you cheer and cry - but not too much! In the tradition of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" ... Written by Laura Sivis

AWESOME MOVIE. Witty, intelligent and at the same time really moving
14 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is the BEST!!! Told through the eyes of an immature Greek girl, Helen Andridis ( Chloe Traicos) it follows the lives of 3 very strong young ethnic Australian women and their trials and tribulations of trying to fit into society while their families attempt to make them hold on to their cultural identity. Helen the Greek girl, whose only love in life is tennis. However her Yaya ( Jill Mckay) wants nothing but for her to marry a nice Greek boy. Naz ( Aimee Falzon) a Pakistani girl, Helen's best friend who falls in love with an Australian boy going against the wishes of her ultra strict family who have an arranged marriage prepared. And of course the beautiful Eurasian Stephanie V. A girl who seemingly has everything but is really harboring a terrible secret.

This film is in the mold of Juno. Funny but sad. Over the top but real. It makes you laugh and cry and realize not everything is as it first appears.
