A 2008 romance film adapted from a same name novel about a London-based Jordanian of Palestinian descent, Tala, who is preparing for an elaborate wedding. A turn of events causes her to have an affair and subsequently fall in love with another woman, Leyla, a British Indian.Written by
Amazing. I loved it so much. The two main actresses were fantastic, very talented young women. The chemistry between the two of them was phenomenal. The suspense they created just held you right there, watching the film and unable to turn away. Moving from Jordan to England, the settings created a background to an incredibly unique film not only about coming out but also about religion, family and culture. It was pretty much just a wonderfully unique film, that gave an entirely new perspective on things and that should be applauded over and over again. The characters were hilarious- all of them. From the maid, to sisters to boyfriends and parents, all the characters complemented each other perfectly and the entire film had me laughing and crying the entire time. Absolutely fantastic!!
