Successfully blending the old and the new, with the east and the west in this "Pygmalion" like contemporary romantic comedy, "Americanizing Shelley" takes place in Los Angeles, and tells the story of a wanna-be Hollywood player, who sets out to Americanize an Indian girl straight from the Himalayas.
As he creatively teaches her all about the American way of life and what it takesbe a Hollywood celebrity, he ultimately ends up learning a thing or two about his own life. Their clash in cultures soon gives way to understanding, unity and love as they begin to see the world through each others eyes.
"Sweet, soulful and full of heart... Irresistible."
