I just recently listened in E! News that this film is actually based on a true story of Shamim Sarif's life, or at least a part of it. As a Director I think she did a good job. It's not a great movie, but it is entertaining and very meaningful.
It is actually an interesting film from a variety of perspectives. It addresses sexuality as well as issues of Middle Eastern faith and culture. This film shows strong women, compassionate men and loving families with ofcourse giving out the strong message to the society at the end.
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.
Rating: 3.5 / 5
