Movie Info

Love has no borders and therein lies the premise of the hilarious, new Iranian-American romantic comedy "Shirin in Love." Nazanin Boniadi plays Shirin, an absent-minded, young Iranian-American living in "Tehrangeles" (the large Iranian community in Los Angeles) with her overbearing mother and empathetic father. Despite being engaged for years to a successful Iranian plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Shirin finds herself breaking loyalty and tradition when she falls in love with a mysterious young man who lives in a lighthouse in northern California. As her secret unravels and cultures clash, Shirin discovers what it ultimately means to be true to herself.(c) Sideshow Releasing

Critic Reviews for Shirin In Love

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

There's a glint of a clever idea here, but writer-director Ramin Niami's reliance on tired rom-com tropes only serve to drag down the film, which plays out like a Harlequin romance.

March 27, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Too bad you must endure dialogue that's sappy and a story that's drippy.

March 20, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Although Boniadi makes Shirin nearly as likable as she's supposed to be, writer- director Ramin Niami's movie is crudely contrived and sloppily edited.

March 20, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

"Shirin in Love" blends tangy romantic comedy and tart social satire into a cinematic cocktail that's pleasingly off-beat, warm-spirited and knowing.

March 14, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Apart from its Iranian-American milieu, this innocuous romantic comedy is strictly formulaic.

March 14, 2014 | Full Review…

The only possible reaction to an amateurish romance like "Shirin in Love" is: Do the filmmakers think we're all idiots?
