David the Movie
Charlotte Jewish Film Festival film sponsored by Mecklenburg Ministries

One boy...two faiths

"David: The Movie" is the remarkable story of one 11-year-old boy who innocently manages to break down interfaith barriers.  It is a story of faith, friendship and family and the challenges of being different in America.

As the son of a Brooklyn Imam, 11-year-old Daud has to juggle the high expectations of his father (Maz Jobrani in a great performance) and his feelings of isolation and difference. Through an innocent act of good faith, Daud inadvertently befriends a group of Jewish boys who mistake him as a fellow classmate.  A genuine friendship grows between Daud and one of the Jewish boys. Unable to resist the joy of a camaraderie he's never known,  "David," as he is known to the Jewish kids, is drawn into a complicated dilemma inspired by youthful zest and the best of intentions.

" 'David's' many small virtues add up to a winning whole, its message of cultural reconciliation presented sans preachiness, melodrama, easy answers or sweeping generalities. Bridging one of the world's defining sociopolitical rifts one 11-year-old at a time, quietly engaging indie "David" brings charm, sympathy and understatement..."  - Variety
