Zoe is a documentary-maker, as well as a dating app addict. However, she has had zero luck swiping. So, diving headfirst into work, Zoe begins filming a documentary about her childhood friend, Kaz. Kaz is as traveling to meet his bride-to-be from his arranged marriage. Then, throughout the film, Zoe begins to wonder if she has something to learn about love from this different approach.

MORE ABOUT THE FILM
How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary-maker and dating app addict Zoe (Lily James), swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, to her eccentric mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson) dismay. For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films his hopeful journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a profoundly different approach to finding love.
The film stars Primetime Emmy® Award nominee Lily James (Pam & Tommy), Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery), Shabana Azmi (Halo), Academy Award® and BAFTA winner Emma Thompson (Matilda), Sajal Aly (Yakeen Ka Safar), Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), Jeff Mirza (Eternals), as well as Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan as himself.
This charming rom-com opens in theaters nationwide on May 5, 2023, from Shout! Studios.
