The Press Reviews

  • ...an immensely charming offering, but falls short of being a new classic. Full Review

  • Walker's debut mines rapid-fire laughs and bountiful heart from a story of romantic misadventure set in train by a young man desperate to live up to his father's expectations. Full Review

  • Offers an astute perspective on the immigrant experience, multicultural communities, and trying to reconcile traditional and modern cultures - all while telling a tale of love and life that's authentic, affectionate and amusing. Full Review

  • To many non-Muslims, the revelation will be the idea that a Muslim sense of humour is alive and accessible to those outside the fold. Full Review

  • This is a film in which you will hear a letter read aloud, with a voice-over saying the words "you dared to dream", delivered without irony. It is, as they say, what it is. Full Review

  • It’s an Oz comedy on a par with another famous story about a wedding that doesn’t pan out as planned. Muriel’s sister might say: You’re terrible, Ali. Full Review
