About the Movie
Vida and Arthur come from very different backgrounds. Arthur comes from a working class family in Wales, whereas Vida comes from a wealthy Jewish family in London. Despite their differences, they’re passionately in love with each other. They try to bring their vastly different families together during a fake engagement party, but it’s a complete disaster. The rift between their families begins to creep into their relationship, and eventually tragedy drives them apart. Can they salvage their relationship and finally bring their families together? Sensitive and touching, sometimes quirky and tragic, always uncompromisingly truthful, a fresh look at how conflicting family ties challenge love in this modern day Romeo and Juliet tale.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: We can guess exactly how the story will unfold but that doesn't lessen the humour or the gentle pathos.
Rotten: Too many scenes are excruciatingly ill-conceived and the couple's chemistry is shaky, yet the outcome is never in doubt.
Rotten: This is a very personal, autobiographical story, pretty indulgent and sometimes a bit insufferable, with some jarringly hammy, misjudged notes. But there's a good cast doing an honest job.
