The british rom-com What’s Love Got To Do With It?, directed by Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) and written by Jemima Khan is now in cinemas!
How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary filmmaker Zoe (Lily James), swiping right to find Mr Right has only delivered bad dates and funny anecdotes, much to her opinionated mother Cath’s (Emma Thompson) dismay.
For her childhood friend and neighbour Kazim (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an assisted marriage with 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 different approach to finding love.
“Love and intimacy - the most used and yet the most misunderstood words in our vocabulary, and yet we search and search for a true experience of these words. That’s what I found exhilarating in Jemima’s script. The opportunity to explore these words in depth yet contain them in a romantic comedy.
And then, as I always do, I work with my actors as each one of us explores what these words mean to us. It’s been an incredible journey … and now it’s over to you, the viewer. To join us in our tears, our laughter, and our search. For yourselves”. Shekhar Kapur.
What's Love Got To Do With It? is a witty and emotionally charged love letter to a world Khan and Kapur both know and have seen from different perspectives.
What's Love Got To Do With It? can be seen now in cinemas everywhere.
