Shirin in Love Has Romance Amid Culture Clashes and Self-Discovery

Posted by monique On March - 11 - 2014 0 Comment

Sideshow Releasing’s “Shirin in Love” is a brand-new film that features romance, Iranian culture through the eyes of different generations and a coming-of-age story. The film, written by Ramin Niami and starring Nazanin Boniadi (“Scandal,” “Homeland,” “How I Met Your Mother”), Riley Smith, (CW’s “90210″), comedians Maz Jobrani (Axis of Evil Comedy Tour, “Friday After Next”) and George Wallace and Amy Madigan, will be released in theaters March 14.

If you’re a fan of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” then you might like “Shirin in Love,” which takes the viewer on a ride through one woman’s journey of self-discovery, not just to find who she is as a person, but to find her place in both American and Iranian cultures. Here’s more about “Shirin in Love”:

“Love has no borders and therein lies the premise of the charming, new Iranian-American romantic comedy ‘Shirin in Love.’ Nazanin Boniadi plays Shirin, an absent-minded, young Iranian-American living in ‘Tehrangeles’ (the large Iranian community in Los Angeles) with her overbearing mother and empathetic father. Despite being engaged for years to a successful Iranian plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Shirin finds herself breaking loyalty and tradition when she falls in love with a mysterious young man who lives in a lighthouse in northern California. As her secret unravels and cultures clash, Shirin discovers what it ultimately means to be true to herself.”
