Touch of Pink ★★ 2004 (R)

Kyle MacLachlan plays the ghost of Cary Grant as he advises Alim (Mistry), a gay Pakistani film studio photographer. It seems Alim needs the advice, as his conservative mother (Mathew), whom he has yet to tell of his sexual orientation, is coming to visit him. Of course, Alim, who lives with his British lover Giles (Holden-Ried), decides to hide the fact with a fake fiancee. The usual hijinx occur. Mostly unremarkable except for a great performance by MacLachlan. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Jimi Mistry, Kyle MacLachlan, Kris Holden-Ried, Brian George, Lisa Repo Martell, Suleka Mathew, Veena Sood, Raoul Bhaneja; D: Ian Iqbal Rashid; W: Ian Iqbal Rashid; C: David Makin; M: Andrew Lockington.
