Moonlight in Odessa (2009)

Ah, the American dream. Young and hopeful Daria from Odessa dreams the American dream, of a caring husband with loving children, and the whole white picket fence, but she doesn't quite know how to go about getting it. She longs to meet the right man who will sweep her off her feet and provide a stable and secure life for her, while being her friend and her lover. However, this is hard when all she seems to have flocking to her is her screwy boss at the shipping company and a mysterious but sexy mobster. What's a girl to do? Daria gets another job to support her and her Boba, at the Soviet Unions as an international marriage broker. She works hard at seeking out love for willing Russian women and optimistic American men, that when she finds a man of her own she is overjoyed even when things don't seem to be like she once dreamed. Will Daria's dreams finally come true or will it simply fizzle in mid air? This was the winner of the 2010 Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance. (CC)
