A Charming New Spin on the Tradition of British Rom-Coms
18 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Finding Fatimah is the latest in a long line of British rom-coms, but unlike the countless Hugh Grant vehicles we've seen in the past, this one puts a unique spin on things.

It features Muslim characters but their religion is never the focus of the story. As a white, atheist, I frankly found it refreshing to see characters from these walks of life who weren't terrorists or the bit-part owner of a corner-shop.

The film obviously stems from a very low budget, but that almost adds to the charm as it helps everything feel that much more sincere. And the film's charms really are its strength. The two leads have a wonderful chemistry and are set to be big breakout stars if their work on this project is anything to go off of.

Along the way, they bump into a slew of cameos like Dave Spikey from Phoenix Nights, Ewen MacIntosh from The Office and a whole slew of Eastenders and Corination Street stars, which all help to keep things light and funny.

Ultimately, the film is a rom com and doesn't exactly try to break that mould so much as it takes it and does it very well. Imagine Bend It Like Beckham as written by Richard Curtis and you're almost there.
