There was a great cast involved in this film, including the comedians themselves as well as religious scholars, Imams, and other comedians and intellectuals like Jon Stewart (whom I claim as a fellow William & Mary graduate at every opportunity), Soledad O'Brien, and Rachel Maddow. They really helped provide a well-rounded discussion about Islam and Islamophobia in America.
Here's a trailer for your viewing pleasure:
This movie is great because it's not about projecting one idea of what Islam is-- it's about showing that just like with any other group in America, there's a lot of diversity. From the Muslim who is very by-the-book and strict in their beliefs, to the Muslim who is less concerned with tradition, to the Muslim who is half-Italian Catholic, this film doesn't work to erase any of those identities, but instead, promote the idea that there are so many different kinds of Muslims and they're really not all that different from anyone else.
Harper's Rating: 4.5 / 5
Grappling with Islamophobia and intolerance
Great, intelligent discourse
Also, great, sarcastic discourse
