How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary-maker and dating app addict Zoe (Lily James, “Cinderella”), swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, to her eccentric mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson, “Sense and Sensibility”) dismay. For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Shazad Latif, “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to 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 profoundly different approach to finding love.
The multicultural film, What’s Love Got To Do With It? was directed by award-winning filmmaker Shekhar Kapur (“Elizabeth”). Besides the rest of the extraordinary, the film has the Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
What’s Love Got To Do With It? is out nationwide May 5, 2023.
