The pneumatic Anna Nicole Smith was a modern-day Marilyn Monroe whose meteoric rise to fame took her from being a single mother in Texas to Playboy’s Playmate of the Year, international supermodel, actress, and reality television personality.

Yearning to leave behind his life of misfortune in the Middle East, Ibrahim Jarrah (Nabawy) wins the U.S Green Card Lottery for a chance to become an American citizen. He lands in New York City on September 10, 2001…and the events of the September terrorist attacks forever shape the struggles he faces on his journey to capture the American dream.
Inspired by true events, the PG-13-rated The Citizen received a limited release to U.S. theaters in September, 2013 to generally positive reviews from the critics, with the Huffington Post describing the film as “Simply impossible to stop thinking about.”

Check out the trailer below for the film directed by Sam Kadi in his first feature and currently on a limited release in the USA. I suspect there may be more worldwide release dates to follow:

The bar has been raised in the "uplifting" immigration drama just enough that you've got to try harder and show more than "This worthy soul from Norway / Guatemala / Vietnam / Albania went through X, Y and Z to get to this country." That tale is tired.
So "The Citizen" throws us this curve ball. Suppose the kindhearted, handsome foreigner who only wants the chance for a better life in America is a Muslim from Lebanon. Suppose the day he gets into the country, thanks to its then-lax "green card lottery" rules, is Sept. 10, 2001. How might that complicate a fairly cut-and-dried storyline?
Egyptian star Khaled Nabawy is Ibrahim Jarrah, who tells a little white lie to the customs guy as he hopefully shows off his green card application and enters the United States. His cousin was to meet him at the airport, but doesn't. No worries.
