“Love, Sex, Belly Dancing, Religious Differences: The star-crossed romance David & Layla is layered with sharply observed cultural details. The movie works thanks to the charm of its leads and the writer and director Jay Jonroy’s observations about Jewish and Muslim family life.” – Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times. “Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet, add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla, a frothy romantic comedy. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of the filmmaker Jay Jonroy.” – Anne Hornaday, The Washington Post. “While the movie evokes a comic tone, David & Layla is a plea for world peace; an optimistic cri de coeur. The music is splendid.” – Harvey Karten, Film Journal International.
