We highly recommend this movie! Though we did like the "Best Foreign Film" Oscar winner "Roma", THIS is the film that should have won that award! (It was the Caanes "Grand Jury" prize winner.) The child in the lead role, Zain al Rafeea, is absolutely riveting! In fact, ALL the acting is excellent (even the baby!). As is the script. The director, Nadine Labak, must really be talented to have gotten this performance out of (as I understand it) non-professional actors. Terrific story and very much a topic of current controversy.

A fantastic film about a street smart 12 year old boy who ends up in prison and then sues his parent for being born.

Only comes with captions for the hard of hearing which describes all the sounds. Very distracting - I couldn’t watch it,
