The story unfolds really well. It does not attempt to forward some kind of touchy-feely message for Muslims. It does show a little violence, but not much of that, nor is it harsh in explicit language.
It does not center on the 9/11 tragedy, but it is about a boy and a woman who need to work around the problems of a grounded nation. If you are looking for a movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon, I highly recommend this movie.
Really, the feel of the movie does include caring about people who are not like each other. The dialogue and interaction between the actors is both realistic and inspiring.
