First things first: the first half-hour of this movie is awful, then it slowly turns into a decent little rom-com.
The awful part is about a man's addiction to graphic depictions of the female figure. The rom-com part is about the interplay between a Palestinian-American man and the Israeli woman who marries him for the papers. I can't guarantee you'll make it to the romantic part. The beginning is that bad—and yet I'm interested in the issues and in both cultures (Palestinian, Israeli) and languages (Arabic, Hebrew).
One redeeming feature that I see in the movie will be of interest to few. The reason I watched it is that everyone's favorite Middle Eastern actress (Hiam Abbass) plays the man's mother. I had seen her as a Tunisian, a Palestinian, a Lebanese, a Druze, a Syrian, and whatever she's supposed to be in Blade Runner 2049. Now she's added American to the list.
