Review: The poster goes all out on the Muslim aesthetics from the veil dance motif to the lettering, but it all feels a bit overbearing at times.

Trailer Rating: B-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: The idea of a woman finding her release in expressing herself while her family and her religion look down on her for it is a compelling one. The trailer doesn’t quite give the impression that the film is going to get there and its clunky and meandering way of expressing that is distracting.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
