    Click this Official Movie Site for film Trailer, film Clips, and showtimes daily starting July 20th at Music Hall, BEVERLY HILLS and at other Laemmle theatres, Fallbrook 7 in WEST HILLS and at One Colorado in PASASDENA and nationwide theatres in Orange County, Washington DC, Florida, Detroit, Nashville... (Clicking on a theatre listed at the Official Movie Site takes you to that theatre's site, boxoffice, showtimes, directions, etc.)

    Persian American Hollywood actress "Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." VARIETY.

    Film's music features Kayhan Kalhor, Ali Moradi,The Kamkars, Sussan Deyhim,...plus Jewish Klezmer and New York Jazz.

    Trailer is already showing at cinemas with such Oscar and Award-wining international films as Black Book, The Lives of Others, etc.

    "...an earnest, frequently funny comedy about stateless persons and the looming clichés that make Muslims and Jews so wary of each other. Completely accessible tale of the unlikely romance between a quintessential Jewish New Yorker and a lovely Muslim Kurdish refugee. Independent production boasts a brand of immigrant chutzpah that highlights the "anything is possible" side of the American Dream with energy to burn..." VARIETY.

    David & Layla shall continue to show at all these theatres for as long as Iranians, Kurds and Middle Easterners encourage Americans and all friends of 'Love & Peace' in the world to see this enlightening romantic comedy! (Otherwise, it would quickly be replaced by other films.)

    21 Official International Festival Selections receiving 5 Awards, including Best Breakthrough Performance Award- Shiva Rose, and the Spirit of the Independents Award- Jay Jonroy, Writer/Director.

    "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. David and Layla is a superior variation on that film, with unexpected insights..." Joe Baltake, Independent Film Critic.

    Film is unique by being Official Selections not only at regular international film festivals but also at Conflict Resolution and Human Rights fests, as well as at Romantic and Love film festivals!

    It recently screened in Panaroma in Italy's Shakespeare Verona Amore Film Festival as a modern re-interpretation of Romeo & Juliet.

    David & Layla received 'Prix du Public/Audience Award' in 2007 at 23rd Valentine International Amour Film Festival in Mons/Belgium. A Guinness World Book of Records for a 'political romantic comedy'!?

    "Congratulations to Jay Jonroy for succeeding in making such a bold, politically relevant film against impossible industry odds." Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Laureate for Literature, twice Oscar nominee, London-based Writer/Actor/Director.

    For as yet an unreleased film, remarkably there are already 50+ diverse reviews posted at IMDB.com from festival screenings in the USA & Abroad.

    Every take of this film is different, original and 100% positive!
