Go To

A 2022 Romantic Comedy. Zoe, documentary filmmaker, decides to make her next film about her childhood friend Kaz's decision to enter into an arranged marriage.

Not to be confused with the Tina Turner Biopic of the same name.

Provides examples of:

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Cath keeps trying to set Zoe up with her vet, much to Zoe's annoyance.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: Kaz's brother Farooq and his wife are both happy in their arranged marriage. In their interviews it's established that they had a lot of common interests and were in similar social circles but just hadn't crossed paths until their engagement.
  • Sad Bollywood Wedding: Maymouna looks pretty distraught at the nikkah. Aisha tells Zoe that this isn't at all unusual. What she doesn't know is that Maymouna is marrying Kaz at the insistence of her parents even though she's in love with someone else.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Zoe historically hasn't had much luck with dating.
