Dunya’s Day (2019)

Dunya’s Day had me roaring with laughter. Sitting in my office during a lunch break I put on the film and fell under its spell roaring with laughter so loud that people came from other offices to see what the commotion was.

The film concerns a young woman on the day of her graduation party. A young woman operating in a Saudi society that is class and status conscious she’s become such a hot mess in freaking out that all her staff has run out on her. When her friends arrive she forces them into helping her finish up preparations. It all goes horribly and hilariously wrong.

Funny for all the right reasons, Dunya’s Day is a delight from start to finish. I was laughing from start to finish and while part of me felt sorry for her, another part of me didn’t because she brought it on herself.

How good is the film? Having qualified for the Oscars, I’m hopeful that it will not only be short listed but get nominated.

Track this film down.
