During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers.
Yousef tells Alan that the only place he has visited in the United States is Alabama. Alan, surprised, asks him, "Why Alabama?" Yousef responds, "You mean because I was the only Arab for 1,000 miles? I had a scholarship for one year in Birmingham." Birmingham, Alabama, actually has one of the oldest and most established Arab American and Middle Eastern communities in the Deep South. For example, the Lebanese-American community in Birmingham was established in the late 1800s. In 1910, St. Elias Maronite Catholic Church (the Maronites being a division of Catholicism with roots in the countries that are now Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel) was established; as of April 2018, their Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival is one of the longest-running food festivals in Birmingham.

When Alan wakes up lying on his bed after he cut open the lipoma, both his shirt and bed sheet are blood-soaked.

[mimicking The Talking Heads in his music video TV commercial]
You may find yourself living in your garden shack. And you may find yourself not at home in your home. And you may find yourself looking for your large automobile. And you may find yourself without a beautiful house. Without a beautiful wife. And you may ask yourself "Well, how did I get here?"
[riding a roller coaster for the chorus]
Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

i'm Saudi , and i'm really shocked from the way other societies think of us !!
first thing first we don't swim topless :D , second thing is we don't look like this ! sorry but there are better options than this actress :S she looks more like Indian and i would never tell that she is Saudi
the movie shows like if Jeddah is an old uncivilized city which is not true !!
people are way more sophisticated than how it seems to look in the movie
they didn't show the real side of the real Saudi families ! we are not living like Yousef barbarian way !!
and the elevator scene when there was a girl with to adults women looking at Tom in tough way like we never smile :D really we are not like this
and who said that there are not many female doctors in our country !! women in Saudi Arabia can be doctors, teachers , lawyers , designers , etc..
PS: there is no WAAY the our king would meet anyone for this simple project :s it is no easy to meet a king there are other people who do this meeting in behalf of the king
