Based on scenarist and star Osamah Sami’s memoir Good Muslim Boy, this delightful rom-com from Down Under is at once heartwarming and hilarious, rousing and irreverent.

The film follows the misadventures of Ali (Sami), the son of a beloved local cleric, as he tells one whopper of a lie, tries to wriggle free from an arranged marriage, falls in love, stars in a theatrical comedy about Saddam Hussein, pretends he’s going to medical school, stains his family’s name and, in a memorable moment of amorous desperation, teaches himself to operate a tractor. Set within Melbourne’s Muslim community, Ali’s Wedding is a relentlessly diverting exploration of what can happen when the imperative to uphold tradition clashes with the dictates of the heart.
