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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Not great cinematography, but story is more than relevant today. Although much of the narrative takes place before 9/11, and its representation of conservative Islam is greatly distorted, it does a decent job of representing the tensions of being Muslim in America. Its representation of irrational bigotry is compelling, although at times over-the-top. Regardless, an important film to see. The sound is unevenly mixed, which makes it difficult to hear the dialogue over the music too many times during the film. Viewing this film on a computer with headphones makes the dialogue more intelligible. Unfortunately, this version of the film does not have subtitles or captions. I found this film online, however, with Arab subtitles. Too bad the producers of this important film could not provide captions for the hearing impaired, or subtitles in any language to increase the population of people who could understand this film.
