When I was 18, I fell madly in love with a girl my first year at college in New York. She was an American. We spent three wonderful months together. I never knew I could feel so... complete. So alive.
Til now, obviously.
So, what happened?
I broke it off. I ended it.
I was in pieces. I told myself that it was for the best. I was away from home, I was lonely, and...
This is not a way to live, Leyla. It's not easy. It's not acceptable.
We didn't break any rules last night, Tala.

Wow! This is a great movie. I felt the actors were actually having this relationship. They dealt with conflict, misunderstanding, and love as if it was something they actually shared. While the premise was a lesbian relationship, this could happen to anyone.
Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth are also very attractive women. This physical attraction made me feel that this movie was more than a movie. I felt that perhaps the story shared on the screen was true. That is, it actually happened between these two women. I enjoyed this movie. I would watch any future films featuring either of these actors. I suggest folks seek movies with either of these performers.
