Worth seeing, if you can find it!
8 January 2010 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is not one you are likely to find at your local theater. It does however belong there, in my opinion. It is an Independent film filmed entirely on location in Seattle and mostly India.

The title describes the plot line. This film is an exceptionally accurate, except for normal film exaggeration. It is billed as a romantic comedy, which it is. It is also much more than that. It is a contemporary treatment of just one of many worldwide situations facing us today. Acting is good and the sets are fabulous, as they are all real! Anyone who has dialed an 800 number for help and wound up talking to somebody on the other side of the world should see this movie. I have personal knowledge as one of my older children (as in 50) has been in an Indian classroom depicted in the film and continues to supervise people in India doing computer work via internet and voice.

The film was included as the feature film in Volume 9, 2009 of Stephen Simon's Spiritual Cinema Circle, a distributor of independent films and shorts to members of the Circle. All the films he includes on monthly DVDs are polar opposites of the genres seen in the mainstream.
