If you want to spend 90 minutes of enjoyable relax alone or with your friends, you should watch "I can't think straight", based on same name novel. It is the story of two women who, after they met, they understood much more about their selves. This is not only a love story, it is the story of two different cultures that blend and mix: Tala comes from Jordan and Leyla comes from Palestina, while magnificent London is the best background for this love affair. There is a strong recall to Bollywood cinematography (music, costumes, characters), as a sort of homage to director's biography. The story comes also along quite quickly, so you can't be bored. This is why there are a lot of romantic and passionate scenes, but also many funny situations which joke some Indian stereotypes.
