Miral

Is this the face of a terrorist?


Miral
Miral is the story of four women whose lives intertwine in the starkly human search for justice, hope and reconciliation amid a world overshadowed by conflict, rage and war. It begins in war-torn Jerusalem in 1948 when a young girl arrived at an orphanage. Now seventeen, she is assigned to teack at a refugee camp just as the Palestinians begin armed resistance. She gets romantically involved with an activist, leading her to ponder which road to follow: armed resistance or education for peace.

Jason Anderson quote iconIt’s a tough call as to what’s the worst thing about this woeful misfire by Schnabel, which has all of the bombastic tendencies of the artist’s features to date but little of the intelligence or panache.
