Apron Strings premiered at the Auckland International Film Festival 2008.

In her first feature Samoan-born Aucklander Sima Urale (King Kapisi's sister, FYI) brings an ebullient light touch to a story which traces parallel, richly loaded domestic dramas in two families of cooks: one Sikh, the other dyed-in-the-wool Anglo.

Lorna (Jennifer Ludlum) is the proprietor of an old-fashioned cake shop, and mother of the listless, unemployed Barry (Scott Wills) who's 35, still living at home and still complaining about her cooking.The glamorous host of an indian cooking show, Anita’s (Laila Rouass) usual poise is shaken when her son Michael (Nathan Whitaker), the apple of her eye, starts to "explore his Indian-ness" by finding a job in an Otahuhu curry-house.
Rich, humorous and filled with warmth Apron Strings is a delicate soufflé of honest domestic coming-of-age dramas that draw the line between mothering and smothering.
