Very broad overall portrait of Muslims, which was refreshing to see.
9 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie a lot. It was about a foreigner living in a foreign land and because he happen to be Muslim, it made him feel even more foreign in America.

It feels like the movie was designed to help Americans understand the full scope of the religion. Their are good guys and their are bad guys just like with any religion. It's a little bit ironic as the story itself is about a Muslim man understanding the world outside his limited view on the faith.

Almost wish that the movie's main draw was not the fact that it's a political thriller about terrorism as watching this young man's own personal day by day struggle was worthy enough.

I times the movie did dwell on things for too long but as a whole it was worth taking time to see.
