Quotes

Montine: Losing people that you love, it hurts. There's going to be days when you think you can't possibly stand how much it hurts.

Excellent Indie Movie
16 March 2013 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

This is the story of a battle weary air stewardess who has to return a young Muslim boy to his father following 9/11.

This is a familiar clash of cultures drama lifted way above the mundane by great performances by the leads Melissa Yeo (absolutely outstanding) and Antony Keyvan and a strong supporting cast.

She is the world weary American and he is the frightened young Muslim boy just wanting to get home to his dad. The film explores well the prejudices held by all parties and how easily they can be broken down.

This is simple, moving but beautifully well written and shot film that is a cut above many other higher budget dramas. This film deserves a much wider audience and is well worth a watch.
