A new movie coming out called, "Amreeka," and was recently reviewed, and strongly recommended by, Roger Ebert. Chronicles the story of a Palestinian woman and her son as they adapt to life in America...below is the opening paragraph from Ebert's review and the trailer as posted on YouTube. Enjoy!
Muna is a non-religious Palestinian, which makes her an outsider on both sides of the Israeli checkpoint she has to pass daily on the way to her job as a bank accountant. She dreams of emigrating to America with her teenage son, Fadi, so he can grow in a less sectarian society. When against all odds, she wins the U.S. lottery for green cards, they leave for a new life that is more, and less, than they expected.
