Ae Fond Kiss - 2004 - 6/10

Picking up his 17 year old sister at school, Casim catches sight of Roisin.
Casim is a Glasgow DJ, hoping to launch his own club. Roisin is the school music teacher.
He is Muslim, with an arranged fiancé in Pakistan. She is a divorced Catholic.
The relationship sparks, heats up, leading to family and “official” interference.
A fair amount of loopholes in this. Age gap, Casim’s naiveté, the school makeup.
Ken Loach film, sunnier than most of his work, though I found the ending forced.
