Jennifer Reeder / Subtitled, Narrative Feature, Saturday, Oct. 7 / USA / 2017 / 80 minsGiving a fresh spin on the usual romantic love story, Signature Move follows Zaynab (co-writer Fawzia Mirza), a Pakistani lesbian lawyer (say that three times fast!) living in Chicago with her aging mother, Parveen (Shabana Azmi). Their relationship is very superficial. They talk and cohabitate, but Zaynab doesn’t talk about who she really is with her mother, mostly because her mother is a traditional Pakistani woman who still expects her to marry a man, going so far as to scan the street for potential suitors ... with binoculars while sitting in her living room.
