One Word: AMAZING! Americans MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!!
Just walked in my front door after seeing this movie...One word: Amazing! It truly delivers the right note. The right emotional punch - several actually.
A movie like this is a necessary step in bringing the dialog necessary to open minds.
A welcome voice of reason and respect in a time of EXTREME and painfully illogical right-wing bullying. A nice message of peace amidst a daily attack by bigot shock jocks who are the true terrorists for inciting violence and fear.
I was NOT expecting this movie to be this good. The performances were so on point. You could really tell that this was a labor of love. I really want to see more from this writer/director. If I had to choose the very best performances, I would say Evan Ross (I was not familiar with his work, but I'm a fan NOW!!!) the girl who played his sister (very emotional without once going over the top) and Roger G. Smith (quiet intensity - just amazing).
This movie deserves global recognition.
