Emotional, moving, honest movie.
9 February 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

In a town in the USA two families share the same harsh fate. But they are from two different cultures, and the movie revolve around this subject. How do they cope, and how do their surroundings respond to them. Sounds boring huh? Let me try again, this movie is excruciating honest, and it will leave you with a feeling of shame. If you're a parent, watch this movie. If you think Muslims from the middle east all are evil, except from the 2 you know personally, watch this movie. If you are young in The States, and got this movie on your to see list, imagine that the two main chars, instead of being left alone to deal with their tragedy, would have gotten professional help from the government.

I cant help wonder how this movie got a score of 5,4. Perhaps the reason for setting a low score, could be that the movie gives a nuanced view upon Muslims and how we/the media treat them.
