AMREEKA, A film by Cherien Dabis, PG-13, 96min, English and Arabic with subtitles
Amreeka chronicles the adventures of Muna, a single mother who leaves the West Bank with Fadi, her teenage son, with dreams of an exciting future in the promised land of small town Illinois, only to end up working at the local White Castle. Told with heartfelt humor Amreeka is a universal journey into the lives of a family of immigrants and first-generation teenagers caught between their heritage and the new world in which they now live and the bittersweet search for a place to call home.
Funny and playful...beautifully written and directed...made with a keen eye and a light touch, Amreeka excels at finding the warmth and humanity in a difficult situation. LOS ANGELES TIMES.
