If you believe in peace, then you'll appreciate this movie. While I'm certain it does contain some inaccuracies, Sadat tells a story of a man who longs for peace amongst a world of mistrust and hatred. However, he never loses sight of a his strong sense of faith toward the betterment of Egypt.

If you are a history teacher who wants to show a great example of a Muslim man who is a hero to peace, then I would recommend showing this movie to your classes. This is a story of inspiration, and I am hopeful the world will have more men with the courage that Anwar Sadat had. He paid the ultimate price, but his example will live on.
