This is a British romantic comedy along traditional light-hearted lines, but with surprising modern twists. Childhood friends Zoe and Kaz decide on different paths to find love: she uses a dating app, he opts for an “arranged marriage” to a virtual stranger from his parent’s homeland of Pakistan. As they encounter differing romantic pitfalls and compare notes, the film offers us a funny and thought-provoking look at romance and passion as seen in different cultures, and the challenges of finding love today.
