May in the Summer: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: This cleverly-titled film follows May (Cherien Dabis) as she comes from New York to Amman, Jordan with her sisters as her wedding date approaches. May’s success as an intellectual and an author in the U.S. makes her popular among her mother’s Jordanian friends, but she encounters much greater difficulty dealing with her family and deciding whether or not to go through the wedding. Dabis pulls quadruple duty as star, writer, director, and producer, creating a thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking look at an American family in a foreign land whose nationality is the least of their problems. (Indie film, May In The Summer) B+/A+
