Shiva Rose, the first Persian American actress in a lead role in an English-speaking feature, winner of Best Breakthrough Performance Award- see Shiva Rose's interview at First Persian actress to get Excellent review in Hollywood industry journal international VARIETY:
    Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for.
    VARIETY 07/24/06. The director, winner of Spirit of Independent Award, will introduce the film. Aptly dubbed as a 'Political Romantic Comedy', David & Layla is making a Guiness Book of World Records by being Official Selection not only at regular film festivals but also at Political/Human Rights and Love/Romantic film fests!

    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.

    Dedicated to the director's own family genocide victims, this 'political romatic comedy' is a gift for the oppressed Layla's of the world.
