Judgment DayStargateand Interview with the Vampire Mainstream cinema deploys various European American identities as tropes to address issues of national belonging, to assert dominant ideals, to allegorize the American Dream, or to discipline ethnicity.
Part of the reason why the film was a success was that it played around with this idea of belonging. When Ian proposes to Toula, she happily accepts, but Gus is upset that Ian did not ask him for permission to date Toula, let alone marry her.
He has gotten accustomed to the Greek way of life; their expressions, language, rituals, traditions, dance, and culture and so on. I think that Toula's relationship with Ian at first emerges because Toula Ian and Toula cannot marry in the Greek Orthodox Church unless Ian converts, and Toula is already worried the wedding will be a fiasco.
Once at the altar with Nicky, Julia is regretting it and has flashbacks about her and Grant.

She isn't like her sister, Athena. With her new computer skills and polished image, Toula asks her mother and her Aunt Voula to convince Gus that Toula should work at Voula's travel agency instead of the restaurant.

After Toula fell, Ian and Toula get to talking and we get to see a close-up which shows the audience how when they are together they are much happier.
There was a close-up of her face to show her expression more clearly. In the end, Greek life and its trappings is the paradigm to which she belongs and to which Toula must find happiness within.
She suggests to Ian that they elope instead. How do we frame their representations in order to advance research that recognizes the multiple facets of these ethnicities while confronting their control by the dominant society? Julia happily says yes. Andy and Nicky meet at the wedding, and fall in love.
