I Can't Think Straight (2008)

Watch.. Click link below

The absolutely gorgeous Indian actress Lisa Ray (Vancouver critics named her Best Actress for Water) plays Tala, an upper class Jordanian of Palestinian origin, whose family lives in London, and who is about to get married.

She meets Leyla, played by Sheetal Sheth, the first Indian-American actress to appear in Maxim. She plays an Indian Muslim who also lives in London.

Clearly, the casting of the leads is meant to appeal to audiences that wouldn't normally watch a lesbian film, even one that is billed as a romantic comedy. They are both accomplished actresses, but they are also very attractive.

Not only do we get a film about becoming aware of one's sexual identity, but one about Arabs and Jews, Christians and Muslims, and, most importantly, family and acceptance.
