Cute story.

by HeatherAnne on Jan 4, 2011

This was a good and very enjoyable film. The main characters, Rochel and Nasira, are easy to relate to, and it's nice to see two women from different backgrounds become such good friends. (Rochel is an Orthodox Jew and Nasira is a Syrian Muslim.) They have to deal with prejudice from each other's families (although Nasira's family was much nicer in that regard.) The two women commiserate over not being able to find suitable husbands despite going the traditional route and having their families assist them in finding a partner. The feminist principal was the most irritating character -- she was annoying because she was always trying to force her point of view upon the two women, and came across as very condescending. She just couldn't understand why modern young women wanted to follow their family and religious traditions.
