Bridges. A common theme in the 2014 Canadian hit "Dr. Cabbie." The bridges between races, cultures, personalities, and in one pivotal scene, two strangers at either sides of the bridge of unrequited love. Dr. Cabbie follows Deepak Chopra, played by the infectiously likable Vinay Virmani, as he finds his own way of rising above the bureaucracy many Torontonians have had to negotiate upon arriving from India with a dream. A beautiful love interest and a quintessential villain help the film transcend realism and become a cultural classic that stays with you. Despite not being a fan of the romantic comedy genre, I couldn't help but have a smile on my face as I walked out. It's exactly why we go to the movies.
