David & Layla film has been described as the "300 Antidote."

 

"A bold, politically relevant film against impossible odds."  - Harold Pinter, Nobel Laureate, Oscar nominee, London-based Writer 

 

"Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet , add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla , a frothy romantic comedy. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of filmmaker Jay Jonroy. Every scene Callie Thorne is in crackles with unhinged hilarity."  Ann Hornaday, Washington Post. 

 

"This indie New York comedy ultimately seduces us with a steady assault of goodwill, bad jokes, goofy charm and buoyant music into buying a love affair between Brooklyn Jew and a Kurdish Muslim.  It becomes contagious." -          Michael Fox, Washington Jewish Week

 

"An earnest, frequently funny comedy.  Persian Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." -  Lisa Nesselson, VARIETY   

 

"It's hard not to be infected by the good humor and sheer joie de vivre of David & Layla." - Ella Taylor, LA Weekly.

 

"My big, fat, Jewish-Muslim wedding." Tom Tugend, The Jewish Journal and The Jerusalem Post    

 

"A superior variation on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with unexpected insights."  - Joe Baltake, Independent film critic. 

 

"Manages to be both randy and chaste.  An offbeat cross-cultural romance with a positive message."  - Michael Ordoņa, The Los Angeles Times
