A lighthearted movie with real substance

I recently saw this movie screened at USC. Since I was going for extra credit in a gender studies class, I expected it to be awful. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. The only issue I had with it was an awkward transition from Tala's engagement party to the first scene with Leyla. Overall, the movie was very entertaining, with well developed characters and plot, while at the same time dealing with the issues lesbians face in different cultures in a very effective manner. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone with an open mind and a sense of humor. 9/10.

A happy romance . . .

This is an interesting film from a variety of perspectives. It addresses sexuality as well as issues of middle eastern faith and culture. Light hearted though it is, it shows several cultures few have seen from the inside out. Modern Britain plays host to many cultures of middle eastern descent. And the stereotype of "angry fathers" and "downtrodden women" is a commonly repeated meme. This film shows strong women, compassionate men and loving families. Filmed in Britain, with very few imported actors, one sees a cross section of cultures working together to produce a good project. This is a great film to take almost anyone to.

Keep it in context

This movie, if you have watched "The Making Of I Can't Think Straight," is autobiographical. It is based upon a true story of Shamim Sarif's life, or at least a part of it. In doing that, do you expect her to be politically correct or present it the way it was? I prefer the latter It's how it was for her and her partner, not how it should be in a perfect world. For a first time director, I think she did a good job. It's not a great movie, but it is entertaining. You can't deny the chemistry between the two main characters, either.
