This emotionally charged art house film stars a very handsome Devon Bostick as the son of a suspected terrorist. As with any Film Festival movie, it is not for everyone. You must be open minded and have patience and let the story start to make sense. There is lots of irony, pain, family issues, drama and ethnic mis-understanding. If you enjoy these types of films, I believe you will come away from it with a sense of awe, and a profound feeling of emotions. To me it was a very powerful and moving story.
I wanted so much to love this film, but there are so many subplots, it distracted from the film as a whole. I must say, I though the film at times was downright boring. It tends to be a bit too talky at times. I was never convinced by the film and was left feeling empty, like the film just wasnât quite complete. On the plus side, the acting is terrific, and the score subtly effective.
