Mona (Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani), 26, is an immigrant from Egypt who was brought to America by her now mother in law (Chafia Boudraa) to run her in-laws' mini market in Chicago and to marry her arranged husband is Mourad (Roschdy Zem), a kind and gentle man who can't stand up to his authoritarian mother. Mona is harassed by her mother-in-law because after five years of marriage, she hasn't be able to get pregnant, something that's considered a shame and a taboo in her culture. Marilyn (Sienna Miller), 29, is a receptionist at a computer repair company. Her marriage with Harvey (Jesse Bob Harper) is on the ropes. The only thing in her life that makes her happy is her belly dancing class as taught by her close friend Peter (Michael Ehlers) who sees Marilyn's gifts and encourages her to try out for a belly dancing group in Santa Fe, NM. Marilyn shops at Mona's mini-market and they have become friends who both incidentally love belly dancing. Two tragedies occur: Mona accidentally gives her mother-in-law a lethal dose of digoxin and fearing she will be arrested she flees; Marilyn loses her job because of the recession and when she arrives home she discovers Harvey cheating on her.Read more ›
I give it only four stars instead of five because the plot left a little to be desired. Yes, it was intriguing and entertaining, and it did the job of providing a context for the people and relationships. But it was strewn with farfetched situations for which explanations weren't given. Get past that, and you're good.

LOVE this movie about a belly dancing contest - but I also LOVE Sienna Miller and I LOVE belly dancing. But it is a very cute movie and a feel good movie too.Published 2 months ago by Jan Jacpbs
Was a new age movie similar to Thelma & Louise. The subject of belly dancing was a added surprise. Overall a very enjoyable movie.Published on January 22, 2014 by Diana Pacheco
