I just finished watching this and pretty much echo everything edgar says here. There are definitely moments that lack subtlety and sure the story may not be totally original but somehow I found this movie pretty engaging especially because of the performances. Completely agree that Tarek’s personality is just totally endearing and infectious. I loved Jenkins performance in this and somehow I found all their interactions really authentic and found myself smiling and crying with them. I liked this a lot more than I expected to!

Grade: B-
