Product Description

Winner of 10 international awards, Three Veils is a poignant and daring film about three young Middle-Eastern women living in the U.S, each with her own personal story. Leila, taken by fantasies of the perfect lover, agrees to an arranged marriage that goes terribly wrong. Amira, a devout Muslim, finds herself in a desperate battle between her faith and her repressed feelings towards women. And, Nikki, a troubled soul who spirals downward on a self-destructive path when her dark and painful past finally catches up to her. As the three stories tenderly unfold, the lives of these three women intertwine while they each struggle to defy tradition and create their own realities.

Review

Heartily Recommended... The performances are fantastic of course, Sheetal Sheth is amazing and beautiful and Angela Zahra is phenomenal... It's one of the most bold and daring films out there. --AfterEllen.com

Three Veils has great production values and a beautiful cast. It is unusual to see a film completely set in the Arab-American community, so it is worth taking a closer look underneath these women's metaphoric veils. --Echo Magazine

Rolla Selbak, director of Three Veils, paints a rare portrait about life in America for three women with Middle Eastern roots in the Muslim world. --San Diego Gay & Lesbian News

Angela Zahra was so beautiful and nuturing, I could easily connect with each character's life experience.

The title of this review states it all. I was truly blown away by this film.

Rolla Selbak has created such an honest, beautiful film that tackles "controversial" issues that should not be controversial, as they are real and happen all the time all over the world. I truly respect her for being brave enough to tackle these issues, when it's a known fact that some groups of individuals were not going to be happy about the subject matter.

Sheetal Sheth continues to amaze me, as she gives another incredible performance in this film. Throughout the film she had me torn between laughter and crying as my heart broke for the struggles she had to deal with.

Angela Zahra and Mercedes Masohn also gave wonderful performances throughout the film, as I truly felt for their characters and what they were going through.

I waited over a year to see this film, and it was incredibly worth the wait. I recommend that everyone should watch this film, as I believe that everyone can take something valuable from it. Fantastic film!

What an amazingly talented group of young women! Rolla Selbak has delivered a real gem. Raw, honest, real emotion with 3 terribly important story lines connected to one another through friendship. Issues so many face but rarely discuss. This movie is full of heart and emotion. I laughed, cried, was angered and left enriched by the stories told.

Sheetal Sheth has quickly become one of my "local" favorites-as I discovered we grew up in the same area. Her talent is astounding-as I continue to discover her work.

The entire cast proved,these issues are real. Although they are contversial, they need to be recognized as such and dealt with through truth and compassion.

Well worth the wait!! Fantastic movie!

I was so excited to see this film. I was instantly captivated as I began to watch this movie...each character in the film is wonderful. Sheetal Sheth is outstanding as Nikki...I loved her candidness and her humor. Angela Zahra was so beautiful and nuturing, I could easily connect with each character's life experience. Mercedes Masohn was so innocent and lovely...loved her. I have watched it over and over...Great film! Rolla Selbak takes you on quite a journey through each of these women's lives.

I was able to see Three Veils at a screening in Alaska and was completely blown away by the film. It is a story about a specific period of time in the lives of three Muslim-American young women who are each dealing with their own struggles such as arranged marriage, lesbianism, substance abuse and who's lives are intertwined through friendship.

The director, Ms. Selbak, did a fantastic job in the way she wrote the film as we see the story told three times from the three different points of view of the three main leads. Leyla, who is dealing with an arranged marriage; Amira, who as a devout Muslim is stuggling lesbian tendencies and Nikki, who is dealing with substance abuse while dealing with family issues.

While all of the above are very dark subject matters, Ms. Selbak interjects humor into the mix as well. I laughed with the film, I cried with the film.

The three lead actresses did a phenomenal job. I was especially taken with the performances of Sheetal Sheth as Nikki and Angela Zahra as Amira, both of which grab you from the beginning of the film and don't let go. It's refreshing to see such strong women characters in film. The supporting cast was also fabulous as well.

I would highly recommend this film to everyone but especially to women everywhere. While these are Muslim-American women in the film, the themes are universal to all women. They are struggles that we all face regardless of our ethnic, religious or societal backgrounds.

Thank you, Ms. Selbak for creating such an amazing film that I certainly connected with.

One is abt to join a man in an arranged marriage and expects a fairy tale life. One is a repressed lesbian trying to come to terms with urges that her culture demonizes. The third is struggling to overcome the incestuous sexual abuse that still haunts her. All are students on the same college campus but engage each other from different direction, and each sees her interaction with the others in a very personal and individual viewpoint. Very interesting to see how their personalities color their perceptions of the same situation. A good reminder that we all have demons that only we can see when we work so hard to hide them. All in all, satisfying and uplifting, and I watch this fairly often for that reminder to be kinder to our fellow humans.

This is one of the best films about women I have seen. It is truly groundbreaking in the sense that it tackles many of the hard issues, including sexual taboos, that Middle Eastern women (and women in general) struggle with, but are rarely discussed, and does it with all honesty and truth and without any fear. I applaud the director and the cast for a wonderful and courageous film that is also tender, beautiful and entertaining.

Sheetal Sheth if hot right now. She's a beautiful girl and all her movies are great. Conflicts exist and she handles it with alcohol. But her buddies try and help her through the hard times. I would recommend this movie.
