Funny, dramatic and at times suitably frustrating, Alex & Eve is just the kind of multicultural rom-com needed
A Greek Orthodox man and a Muslim woman try to overcome their families’ objections in this Australian variation on ‘Romeo and Juliet.’
The writer and director offer a marketable point of difference to the Hollywood pap that typically dominates this genre, without overplaying their multiculturalism angle.
Alex and Eve is at times broad and a touch gauche but it has the spark of real life, and a sense that it could not have come from anywhere else. It’s also really funny.
