"[A]s cross-cultural bridge-builders go, [the] pic is smart, funny and sweet..."
Clashing cultures and longing hearts collide in director James Dodson's THE OTHER END OF THE LINE, a charming comedy about global love connections. As the film opens we meet Granger Woodruff (Jesse Metcalfe of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES), an advertising hotshot desperate to win over a demanding new client (Larry Miller). Halfway around the world, someone else is taking an active interest in Granger: Priya Sethi (Bollywood star Shriya Saran), an India-based service rep for one of Granger's credit cards. When Priya--pretending to be San Franciscan "Jennifer David"--contacts Granger about fraudulent charges, they strike up a casual flirtation that causes both to question their respective romantic prospects: he, a diva-like girlfriend (Sara Foster); she, an arranged marriage to a mama's boy of a suitor. Priya impulsively accepts Granger's invitation to meet her in San Francisco, where she accidentally meets him not as her alter ego but as her idealistic self. But with Priya's traditionalist family and Granger's domineering girlfriend in hot pursuit, it isn't long before the two are forced to confront their true identities and intentions. And as the cultural divide widens between them, Priya and Granger must find the courage to build a bridge across the hurdles to their budding relationship. With its appealing leads and amusing supporting cast, THE OTHER END OF THE LINE is a sweet-natured romantic fantasy that poses real questions about how love and truth can bring individuals and cultures together in today's world.
