Sad and powerful
30 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Miral is the true story of the founding of an orphanage in Jerusalem in 1948 during the Arab-Israeli war. Hind Husseini came across fifty five kids living in the streets and took them home for food and shelter. Six months later, she had two thousand children to look after.

Jumping forward to 1978, a five year old girl, Miral, whose mother has died, is sent there to live by her father. At fifteen, she is sent to teach at a refugee camp and sees first hand the suffering of the Palestinians. She meets a militant, Hani who tries to convince her of the need for a militaristic solution to the conflict. Her mentor, Hind Husseini believes that education is the key to their people's long term survival. Of course, in the end, no easy answer is provided. Freida Pinto is too distractingly beautiful as Miral, but she gives a good performance as the title character and the film is well worth a viewing.
