This film is just wonderful. It was really impactful, but it also treated the characters with a certain gentleness and compassion that was so great to see. The two leads are great, and the story they weave is truly touching. A nuanced and important look at immigration, family, substance abuse, and love.

As someone who isn't the biggest fan of Romance movies, this film really surprised me. On its surface, this film is a classic opposites attract love story. However, the film's performances, comedy, and plot really sets it apart from other Romantic Comedies. Not only was the plot unique, but the characters were believable, enthralling, and likable. Though lighthearted, the film takes on important issues, such as immigration and racism, with intelligence and sympathy.
