I loved Amira and Sam
26 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

It was refreshing to see a modern love story; Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story, we do have beautiful stories, but we need current stories for these times that resonate with today's young people. The characters in the story were likable, the concerns of the uncle are realistic, the love of the younger people seem true and the lives they were living were real and complicated. I am a sixty year old woman and was delighted to see a movie that entertained was character driven, surprising, and sweet. My children liked it, my husband liked it and friends were with all liked it! Go and see it you will not be disappointed.
