Americanizing Shelley

Movie Summary

Director:
Lorraine Senna Ferrara
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG
In the vein of 'Bend It like Beckham,' and 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding,' 'Americanizing Shelley' is a contemporary "Pygmalion" like comedy, set in L.A., featuring an American country boy and a Himalayan village belle, thrown together in this 'Middle America' meets 'Middle East' charmer. Responding to a challenge thrown by the CEO of a Hollywood management company (Bridges), 'Americanizing Shelley' tells the story of a wanna-be Hollywood player from the deep South, who sets out to Americanize an Indian girl straight from the Himalayas. Problems occur when our hero runs into cultural clashes while executing her American make over. He's also working against a ticking clock which he thought was 8 weeks but is actually 6 weeks because that's when her family is coming to America for the wedding she told them is going to be taking place, otherwise she will be forced to go back home in disgrace.
