    **** "An earnest, frequently funny comedy. Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." - Lisa Nesselson, VARIETY.

    ++++ Hollywood actress Shiva Rose (Layla) received 'Best Breakthrough Performance' Award. With over 20 reviews, Shiva Rose is now the highest, consistently praised Iranian actress in America.

    ++++ David & Layla was featured in May 2007 in Panorama at the Verona/Italy International Amore Film Festival, as a modern interpretation of Romeo & Juliet.

    **** "A bold, politically relevant film against impossible odds." - Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Laureate, Academy Award nominee Writer.

    ***** "Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet, add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla, a frothy romantic comedy. Every scene Callie Thorne is in crackles with unhinged hilarity. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of the filmmaker Jay Jonroy." - Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post.

    **** "Let's call for a ceasefire in the hostilities in the Middle East, require all combatants to take a 108-minute break and watch this movie. A perfect companion piece to the Oscar-winning short film 'West Bank Story.' " - Keith D. Cohen, Jewish Chronicle.

    **** "A superior variation on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with unexpected insights." - Joe Baltake, Independent Film Critic.

    ***** "It's hard not to be infected by the good humor and sheer joie de vivre of 'David & Layla'." - Ella Taylor, LA Weekly.

    Film opens on this date. It will continue to play for a week or more as long as Iranians $ American friends go to see it, especially during the first weekend!
