CGiii Comment

Layla...what a woman!

Strong, proud, independent and fierce. No man walks over Layla. She's the friend you want...when in need.

Palestinian patriarchy gets a bashing in this tale of creeping modernity.

When the pious collide with the party girls...sparks are destined to fly. There are chills, thrills, tears and laughter as these women assert their independence...let no man put them asunder...God help them if they do!

Fine performances, solid direction and a powerful message...what more do you want from a film?

A sequel? Well, that would be most welcome.
