HASH(0x99a78a74) out of 5 stars Incredibly Accurate July 25 2010
By davidkakish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For someone who grew up in the West Bank and moved to Illinois, I was amazed at how accurate this film is and how it included so many little details that were right on the money. This movie was able to capture so many emotions and the humanity of this entire experience. Honestly, I have never seen anything so close to my experience. This essentially is the story of my life. This accurately describes my experience and journey from the West Bank to Chicago.

HASH(0x9cb30288) out of 5 stars A masterpiece Oct. 31 2009
By Dr. Peter J. Glassman - Published on Amazon.com
"Amreeka" is a masterpiece: heartbreaking, moving, complex, fierce, tender. Extraordinary writing, sublime acting, and haunting visual and aural landscapes. This work brings to one of the most tragic situations in contemporary history a most sophisticated, generous moral imagination: outrage, understanding, anguish, humor.

"Amreeka" will transform every viewer's percepts. Please see it.

HASH(0x99a6b1d4) out of 5 stars every high school teacher should see this! Aug. 4 2010
By Lisa Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As there is so little responsible, empathic depictions of Arabs and especially Palestinians in the current media, this movie is a breath of fresh air. It accurately and endearingly shows the adjustment struggle of an Arab family to North America. I thought the high school scenes were poignant reminders of how high school classes need to be taught as if they were representations of the outside/"real" world - not free for all zones where you can say anything and not be held responsible! Everyone needs to learn "civilised" behavior,or else we all pay the consequences. I liked that they spoke real Arabic in Amreeka - did you know that alot of Hollywood Arabic is just gobeltygook? How disrespectful! Maybe we can start actually seeing Arabs in film as people, and not the stereotype that gives us permission to project our disowned feelings onto - what a concept! This movie moves us forward!

HASH(0x998817c8) out of 5 stars Charming, Funny and Genuine, but Ends Abruptly July 31 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a movie about a middle-aged woman from Palestine whose husband has abandoned her and their teenage son. Realizing that her working life in Palestine is a dead-end, and worrying about her son's prospects for the future, she decides to move to America. Most of the movie is spent following the main character's life in the United States.

The characters are absolutely believable. Bravo to the actors, old and young, who brought these characters to life. The writing avoids the obvious stereotypes which plague Hollywood productions, and provides a rich mixture of humor and drama. Obviously, the situation in Palestine is a foundation for this movie, but other themes are well-explored: being middle-aged and underestimated by others, the tribulations of adolescence, and the difficulties faced by anyone who finds themselves in a new homeland.

The one failing of this movie (and the only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars) is that its plot has a beginning and a middle, but no end. The final scene fades to black, as though we might tune in next week to find out what happens next, but then... the credits roll.

HASH(0x99b5e9f0) out of 5 stars AMREEKA THE BEAUTIFUL!! July 4 2010
By Loves To Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What happens when your life is turned upside down by your husband divorcing you for a slimmer, younger woman and walls are built around where you live adding hours every day to your commute to work and you spend every penny to keep your son in a private school? You take the first best opportunity that comes along to get out of that situation. Muna, a Palestinian single woman, does just that when she receives an offer to relocate free to America. This begins the adventures and misadventures of someone immigrating to America with the hopes and promises of a better life. She lands in a small town in Illinois to live (temporarily is the plan) with her sister and physician husband and teenage children until she can establish herself and son. She has two degrees and has had professional experience in the work world so it shouldn't take long - wrong! Told with humor as well as heartbreak (it's just after 9/11and anyone from the Middle East is the enemy), this National Geographic film is a reminder of why people still come to AMREEKA and how easy it is to be misunderstood and to struggle to make a living no matter how hard you are willing to work. It is worth watching by families whose children may be finding it difficult to accept those who don't talk or dress or act just like us. Changing schools as an American teenager can be very difficult. Try coming from another country, especially one we see as an adversary. Highly recommend.
