A romantic comedy about a young Iranian-American woman and the lengths she goes to in order to appease her parents and their need to see her settled down.
About The Film

Nousha continues to sabotage her relationships, much to the frustration of her parents. She is, after all, their only hope for a real Persian wedding. Under this pressure, Nousha meets Alex Talbot—a bisexual artist, activist and DJ living in an old warehouse. Their relationship progresses quickly, ultimately coming to the moment when Nousha’s parents discover that she and Alex are living together before marriage. Chaos unfolds, leading to a wedding that is anything but simple.

Clever, funny and moving, Simple Wedding delightfully circumvents genre tropes through smartly written characters and a uniquely engaging story. Breakout Tara Grammy shines as Nousha, a role that offers a fresh representation of a leading woman in a rom-com. First-time writer/director Sara Zandieh has crafted a subtly charming and smart film that illustrates how relationships—both romantic and familial—are built and tested, but in a way that never feels forced. Plus: one of the best Celine Dion impressions you never knew you needed!
