    At Stockholm's 17th Int'l Film Fest, Director will introduce the film competing in ‘American Independents’ section. DAVID & LAYLA is unique by being Official Selections not only at regular film festivals, but also at 'Political/Human Rights' film fests, and at 'Love/Romantic' film fests. 18 Official Selections, 2 Wins. See at From an impossible romance, a hope (a fantasy!) for peace: David & Layla- a Jewish Muslim Romantic Comedy. Set in New York, inspired by a true story. "This new comedy about young loves and the large ethnic families (on both sides) that stand between them could have been just another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but its originality and insight set it apart. This outright charmer by Jay Jonroy has the potential of being a broad crowd-pleaser, along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Only David and Layla is a superior variation on that film, with unexpected insights…” Joe Baltake.

    DAVID & LAYLA is in "American Independent Competition" with ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ and other notalbe independents that were at Sundance NY and Tonronto fests by major filmmakers such as Richard Linklater Kevin Smith…etc featuring such stars as Nick Nolte Wynona Ryder Keanu Reeves Robert Downy Jr. Woody Harrelson Winona Ryder Ben Affleck…
