Shirin in Love

Synopsis: Love has no borders and therein lies the premise of the charming, new Iranian-American romantic comedy "Shirin in Love." Nazanin Boniadi plays Shirin, an absent-minded, young Iranian-American living in "Tehrangeles" (the large Iranian community in Los Angeles) with her overbearing mother and empathetic father. Despite being engaged for years to a successful Iranian plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Shirin finds herself breaking loyalty and tradition when she falls in love with a mysterious young man who lives in a lighthouse in northern California. As her secret unravels and cultures clash, Shirin discovers what it ultimately means to be true to herself.

I want to be married too!

I love her!

I could look at her...

one of her hair all day

and just wonder why did it wave

like this instead of like that?

What are you reading now?


Oh, it's a new

Rachel Harson novel.

Oh, she has a new one?

Yeah, In The Storm.

That's an advanced copy.

I love her.

It's her best yet.

Once I'm done reading it,

I'll let you borrow it,

and I'll bring you

some more beer.

Forget the beer.

Just bring the book

and the tall doctor.

( music )

( speaking foreign language )

Mom, please.

I don't want to.

- Come on.

- Not tonight, please.

( indiscreet chatter )

Can we get out of here, please?

Yes, honey.

We will shortly.

I just want you to meet Ali Ali.

We call him Ali Dobey.

I'm glad you found

something to look at.

- This is Shirin.

- Pleasure to meet you.


Pretty cute.

Uh well, I was a

human rights attorney,

and I... I gave it up to write.

She's a book reviewer

from the magazine.

This one?


A big fan

of Rachel Harson.

You do whatever

you want, honey,

as long as you quit

when we have children.

And you know I want

a lot of children.

Here's to Rachel Harson

and In The Storm.

I would say 50 is

the best for you.

Oh, come on...

( foreign language )

Darling, I promised Roya

that we're gonna have

grandchildren before too long,

and you're not gonna

disappoint us, are you?

I'll do my best.

Don't keep on

touching your hair.

Dr. June.

- Shirin.

- What are you talking about?

Shirin, come on, come on.

That's okay.

She's just a bit nervous

about the wedding.

Let's have the music louder.

Spring me.

That's interesting.

You go wash your face.

I'll go get you a water, okay?

I'll be right back, okay?

( laughing )

Don't you just love

this music?

( Thundering )
