Three Veils is the movie I've been waiting for. The movie is about 3 young Muslim women, dealing with different social and political issues-women's rights, rape, gay relationship, pre-arranged marriage, family expectations, love, friendship-that are a big part (and a problem, in my opinion) of everyday life in this culture. With a sense of humor, all three of them are fighting their own problems related to social stigma, culture and/or religion in order to have a normal, happy life they long for. This movie will provide some insight into the Muslim culture for those who are not already familiar with it and would like to know more. Being a Muslim myself, I'd always thought that we needed a movie like this to be made. We need talk about everything that our parents and grandparents didn't want to, because they were ashamed or afraid. I'm thankful to everybody who made it possible for this movie to be made: , Amira-Angela Zahra, Nikki-Sheetal Sheth, Leila-Mercedes MasÖhn, Jamal-Garen Boyajian the director-Rolla Selbak, the producer Ahmad Zahra and others. We need more movies like this!
