Released:
2000
Rating:
Not Available
It's 1979 and Mary (Mariam Parris), an Iranian-American teenager, pursues fun and romance in the New Jersey suburbs. Mary's world is radically transformed, though, when Ali (David Ackert), her fundamentalist Muslim cousin, comes to live with her family at the same time that Americans are taken hostage in Iran. American backlash against Iranians and Ali's disclosure of the family's dark history force Mary to come to terms with her own unique, culturally divided identity.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Carefully crafted, notably in its deft dramatic structuring, and has become timely in a way its maker could never have anticipated.

  • 60

    Variety

    A lovely, intricate coming-of-age portrait set in a cross-cultural context.

  • 40

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    There's not much here; some of the shots feel so static that you wonder if they're being rehearsed before your eyes.
