What’s Love Got to Do With It?

How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary filmmaker Zoe (Lily James), swiping right to find Mr Right has only delivered bad dates and funny anecdotes, much to her opinionated mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson) dismay. For her childhood friend and neighbour Kazim (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an assisted marriage with a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films his hopeful journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a different approach to finding love.

Reviews:

Seeing James and Latif together makes one giddy, a feat that even Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan couldn’t manage. TheWrap

Although it is perhaps not the most culturally sensitive examination of arranged marriage, it is an amusing charmer of a picture which trades heavily on the chemistry between its two stars, with support from Emma Thompson. Screen International

What’s love got to do with What’s Love Got to Do with It? For us, by the end, very little. But there’s plenty of like here instead. Guardian

Gives both heart and funny bone the attention they deserve. Hollywood Reporter
