    Showtimes at official movie site:

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

    "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.

    "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.
