TriviaDemetrius' father, Williben, works as a server at a restaurant in their hometown of Greenwood, Mississippi. The location used to shoot the restaurant scenes was Lusco's, a real restaurant that has been a Greenwood institution since it was opened in 1933 by Italian immigrants. The restaurant's appearance is distinguished by its individual, curtained-off private dining booths, which are visible in the movie. As of 2006, the restaurant was still running. See more »

Anil: So what? I'm living in America! You don't like it? Then go back to India!

Frequently Asked QuestionsThis FAQ is empty. Add the first question.
The theme of interracial romance is the setting for this fine drama and focus on the divisions between black Americans and South Asian communities. Denzel Washington and Sarita Choudhury are appealing as the central figures from different backgrounds and struggle to stay together amid the controversy that swirls around them. Washington and Choudhury have a nice chemistry that works very well in this picture and makes their romance even more believable. They have their share of ups and downs and face challenges to their relationship like any normal couple. The movie touches on the origins of the immigrant status of the South Asians which began when they were expelled from Uganda many years earlier. The resentment towards blacks is a recurring theme in the movie as they settle into their new communities in the deep south. The film has a bouncy music score that adds flavor to the story and a nice cast weaves everything together in fine style.
