A filmmaker in search of the formula for true love makes a documentary about her best friend's arranged marriage into the British romantic comedy What's Love Got to Do with It? Or as she calls it, Love Contractually.
Zoe and Kazim, two childhood friends now in their 30’s must decide whether to follow their heads or their hearts once he decides to follow his parent’s advice and enter into an arranged marriage with a woman he has never met in Pakistan. Zoe, a documentary filmmaker, decides to capture his experience, while at the same time dealing with her own digital dating woes, her opinionated mother Cath and both her and Kazim’s high-spirited families and friends.
"Shekhar Kapur’s smart, effervescent romantic comedy follows a filmmaker who decides to document her best friend’s journey toward arranged marriage. (…) The film strikes a rare balance between respect for custom and belief in the power of romance." - TIFF
