What’s Love Got to Do with It? serves as a master class in how to adhere faithfully to the classic romantic-comedy template and yet still emerge with something that delivers delightfully on both sides of the hyphen.”—The Hollywood Reporter. How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary filmmaker and dating app addict Zoe (Lily James), swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, to her eccentric mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson) dismay. For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films his hopeful journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a profoundly different approach to finding love. But Kaz begins to wonder just the opposite….. From the director of Elizabeth, Shakhar Kapur, comes “a charming cross-cultural comedy that can be ranked alongside British classics like Bend It Like Beckham”—The Independent (U.K.).
