Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
Not rated
Junction 48 is the love story of two young Palestinian hip-hop artists who use their music to fight against both the external oppression of Israeli society and the internal repression of their own crime-ridden, conservative community. It depicts a new generation of young Arabs who seek normality through their love and music - and against all odds.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    We Got This Covered Lauren Humphries-Brooks

    Junction 48 is about a fusing of cultures, not a conflict between them. There are no easy solutions or simplistic answers, and the film doesn't try to propose any.

    Slant Magazine Ed Gonzalez

    At its best, the film demonstrates that no art is more political than that which depicts the lived experience of the oppressed with accuracy, empathy, and moral clarity.

    The Hollywood Reporter Stephen Dalton

    While the fuzzy take-home message of peaceful coexistence is something most viewers can get behind, it is also too simplistic and banal to sustain an entire movie.
