| Motherhood, community, religion and Laila Rouass.
This is a drama that focuses on two New Zealand families. A Muslim family in which two sisters have been estranged for years and the son of one of the sisters who tries to build a relationship with the aunt he's never met. A Caucasian family consisting of a mother, her pregnant daughter and the 35-year-old, in-debt, lay-about son who still lives with her. Both story lines are very involving, intertwine somewhat with each other, involving you in their lives and building to the two simultaneous dramatic climaxes.

I saw this at the 2008 Toronto International Film festival and while it is a serious movie and has much to say about motherhood, family, community, racism and sexuality, it's not a morose or preachy film. It's quite entertaining.

One other thing.... guys, it might be considered a chick-flick, but the actress, Laila Rouass, is the most beautiful woman you'll see in any movie, including any "action" movie you might be considering,
