My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Dealing with Ethnic Identities Through a Love Story
When Greek Fotoula falls in love with Ian, an Anglo-Saxon Protestant, she struggles to encourage her family to accept him, whilst he attempts to understand his girlfriends’ Orthodox-Christian and Greek traditions. The bride-to-be has to organize a meeting between his boyfriend’s family and her own. This comedy is not only about romance but also, interestingly and accessibly, brings to the fore the problems that can arise when dealing with differing identities in the contemporary world.
