Alex and Eve

Alex & Eve (Peter Andrikidis, 2015) wr. Alex Lykos; Richard Brancatisano, Andrea Demetriades, Zoe Carides; forbidden relationship: Greek/Lebanese; comedy

Ali’s Wedding has been billed as 'Australia’s first Muslim romcom'. That is true only if a distinction is drawn between 'Muslim romcom' and 'Greek/Muslim romcom'. Alex & Eve, released in 2015, is the latter – a sharper, funnier and sassier multicultural comedy, showcasing the benefits of a comedic performance from a supporting cast member who nails it (in this case a scene-stealing Tony Nikolakopoulos). Luke Buckmaster.
