Editorial Reviews

Pulled between his strict Muslim upbringing by his father and the normal social life he's never had, Tariq Mahdi (Evan Ross) enters college in a state of confusion. New relationships with Muslims and non-Muslims alike challenge his already shaken ideals, and the estrangement with his mother (Nia Long) and sister troubles him. Slowly, he begins to find himself with the help of new friends, family and mentors, but when the attacks of 9/11 happen without warning, he is forced to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evan Ross Gives a Captivating Performance March 2, 2011
By L. Boki
Format:DVD
In his 8th released indie movie, Evan Ross continues to expand his body of work with this practically non-verbal performance that demonstrates what a great actor he continues to shape up in being.

The story is two fold, one about a young man's journey to find his religious/spiritual foundation and the 2nd part focuses on our knee-jerk reaction to a lot muslims after 9/11. Though this could have been an exercise in futility, Evan makes you believe in the character, a true story of the director/writer's experience.

When I saw it in San Francisco, the theater had several religious-garbed muslims in attendance. You could feel the anxiety and tension during some of the more controversial parts like a venture into a madrasa and then the American-fear element after 9/11.

It is a film that should be part of any theological study or investigation of the muslim tradition.

Highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome March 4, 2011
By Tee
Format:DVD
This movie is breathtaking. I am not muslim but my daughter's father is and it touched me. I wish they made this movie years ago. It really made me feel what muslims in america go thru on a daily basis and also during the 9/11 attacks and how unfairly they were treated. I saw myself in Evan's character in my own quest for religion. I hope it comes on dvd very soon. Every muslim needs to see this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful!! March 9, 2011
Format:DVD
I went to see this movie and there were only 5 people in the audience. I think one person fell asleep but the rest of us were lifted by the movie. I think we should all take the time out to see this one. Not just because of 9/11 but for tolerance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Muslim American Viewpoint June 17, 2011
By AZOMAMA
Format:DVD
As a Muslim American I was very impressed to see this movie come out in main stream theatres. I enjoyed the film and was able to relate to the family portrayed in the movie. Though their situation is not representative of every Muslim's situation after 9/11, it gave a very frightening scenario which could have certainly happened at that time. I enjoyed being able to relate to something on the big screen and I applaud the producers of this film and hope there will be more Muslim American films which describe more aspects of our struggles to fit into American society. A must see for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST OWN June 15, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie was incredibly touching. It is a movie about humanity and the actors did an incredible job of bringing the writer's and director's work to life. I requested it to come to my city and watched it as soon as it did. I also pre-ordered it and received it June 14th. I've told anyone and everyone who will listen about this movie. I can't wait to see more from Qasim. Excellent work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely, Moving, Important September 11, 2011
Format:DVD
Today is September 11, 2011, a propitious time to view this small scale but important film based on a true story by the writer and director Qasim Basir. It presents in a very underplayed manner the Muslim generation who were also part of the tragedy ten years ago. The film is an excellent reminder of how important it is to view America as a true melting pot, the citizenry of peoples of all races, nationalities, religions - every one who is a part of this country was at one time an immigrant and struggled. It is our history and we need to consider it at all times but especially now.

Tariq (played as a young boy by Jonathan Smith and as a young man by Evan Ross - 23 year old son of artist Diana Ross) is from a strict Muslim family: his father Hassan (Roger Guenveur Smith) wears a thobe and taqiyah and is immersed in his religion and culture while his mother Safiyah (Nia Long) wears traditional Muslim hijabs and body covering garments but is not as strict in her beliefs as Hassan, They also have a daughter Taqua (Kimberley Drummond). Hassan forces Tariq leave home study and to go to a Muslim school much against Safiyah's wishes. At the school he is beaten by a cruel instructor and suffers taunting when he finds interest in a Catholic girl. Time flips ahead and Hassan is driving Tariq to college where Hassan has demanded a Muslim roommate for Tariq - Hamza (Kunal Sharma) who is a traditional Muslim but when Tariq requests his privacy and to be called T, Hamza willingly complies. Tariq is clearly in a state of anxious confusion about who he is and how to deal with the demands of his father and the experiences of his Muslim schooling.

4.0 out of 5 stars i dig it! September 2, 2011
Format:DVD
I think this was a pretty cool watch. It didn't seem that long to me, but it did shed some light on how some people are conflicted with their religion. Or at least the religion they grew up on. Plus Evan Ross is a cutie pie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving August 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a very moving story about a religion and a family struggling to raise there kids and the acceptance of there Muslim religion in America, sometime kids just want to be just like every one else and fit in, but this story was a good story, and a reality that we should learn from, it was based on facts and i like that.......Evan Ross, Roger Guenveur Smith, Nia Long, his sister and Danny Glover, and the rest of the suportiong cast we outstanding in this movie.
