Total Film - - Exclusive Film Offer -

The per­sonal is the po­lit­i­cal in Maysa­loun Hamoud’s vi­brant, taboo-break­ing de­but fea­ture, track­ing the lives of three young Pales­tinian-Is­raeli women – hard-par­ty­ing lawyer Laila (Mouna Hawa), les­bian DJ Salma (Sana Jam­melieh) and de­vout stu­dent Nour (Shaden Kan­boura). The film re­veals how pa­tri­ar­chal val­ues clash with the de­sires of its fe­male char­ac­ters to lead more eman­ci­pated lives. Tom Daw­son
