Lily James stars in this enjoyable rom-com about a struggling British filmmaker who decides to make her Pakistani bestie’s voyage through an arranged marriage the subject of her next film. The film floats on the chemistry and talents of James and co-star Shazad Latif, overcoming its formulaic plot to become a cute and fun flick. Plus, the generous helping of cultural commentary thrown in as a bonus helps it successfully avoid becoming the syrupy schlock it could have been.

3.5/5 stars
