A dramedy about the challenges of accepting diversity and interfaith marriage.
Hopeless romantics will have a big, fat good time.
Funny, dramatic and at times suitably frustrating, Alex & Eve is just the kind of multicultural rom-com needed in Australian cinemas.
Hot on the heels of unIndian comes another, better Australian cross-cultural romantic comedy.
[An] insightful and, most importantly, accessible examination of generational multiculturalism.
Alex and Eve is at times broad and a touch gauche but it has the spark of real life, and a sense that it could not have come from anywhere else. It's also really funny.
In the end, this is more comedy than romance, and on that level, it succeeds.
There are a few samples of quality produce to be extracted from the new Australian rom-com Alex & Eve. What a shame the whole lot is squashed flat by huge chunks of stale corn and cheese left over from My Big Fat Greek Wedding all those years ago.
We need to fund and produce more stories like this; stories which move away from stereotypes to tell enjoyable, unifying and nuanced stories that reflect multicultural Australia, and have the power to heal some of our deepest wounds.
The writer and director offer a marketable point of difference to the Hollywood pap that typically dominates this genre, without overplaying their multiculturalism angle.
The material may have been funny on stage, but it seems strained on film as both families register their horror at the romance.
