Editorial Reviews

13 Months of Sunshine is the story of an Ethiopian man who marries a woman so she can get a green card and become a citizen of the United States. In exchange, her family pays him $20,000, enough to open up his own dream business--an authentic Ethiopian coffee house.

During the year-long naturalization process, they must learn to live with each other, finding that the marriage of convenience becomes complicated through love, jealousy, and the clash of cultural values each must face in following their dreams.

Hanna is a beautiful Ethiopian girl who is quickly drawn into the world of fashion. Meeting Morris Benton, a fashion agent specializing in Ethiopian models, Hanna learns that the world of modeling forces her to question her traditional values in the face of pressure to conform to American standards.

The call of coffee, of fashion, and the unspoken desires of each character all collide in a colorful, comedic, and heartwarming tale that speaks both to the immigrant spirit and to the American dream. As Solomon and Hanna draw closer together they discover that life is filled with things that complicate and confuse them, and they must decide what is important.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This tale of the Ethiopian diaspora in America mostly fit the bill for me. Previously I was unfamiliar with the Ethiopian culture. For the most part, the acting was good. However, Solomon did seem to meander a bit throughout the film. While his vision and actions regarding the cafe shop were clear, the rest of his life was not as defined, especially his ambiguous relationship with his previous live-in girlfriend. Hanna was a bit more developed as a character; her motivations were always clear.
Overall a good film for a quiet evening. However, I was not prepared for the brief burst of profanity uttered by the fashion photographer in the middle of the film. It seemed out of place with the rest of the film. The fashion agent,who had more reason to be angry, was tame by comparison. This prevented me from rating this film higher.
