Milan's work enchants me, since they're all stories about how people must acknowledge and overcome the flaws within themselves in order to become part of a couple. That they are grounded as well, in historical injustices and social movements, just makes them all the better. These succeed where most rom com movies fail, because they recapture that delight Pride and Prejudice so universally invokes. The characters are not kept apart by trivial and contrived plot devices, but only by personal baggage. It gives the characters greater depth and it makes the happy ending feel like something properly fought for.
