4 solid stars.
I love low budget movies that remind us that you don't need to spend $200 million in special effects and CGI to tell a story. Specifically, a human story.
I would had change the plot a little bit, but it was still interesting to me. The movie develops an emotional bond between characters and viewers.
I understand this is the debut feature film of the writer/director. I hope he directs another movie soon.

It's a simple story, but fun to watch and also very interesting from a cultural perspective.

I've loved everything I've seen Martin Starr in and this sweet love story did not disappoint. I feel like the intersections here are really interesting. I was interested in all the worlds this film peeked into: Iraqi war-time, stand up comedy clubs, Wall Street hedge funds.

I really enjoyed this film. Yes, it was a bit slow; however, it had a good message, if one is open to receiving the messages.

Not a bad movie. I was expecting something much less. Very simple story, but still watchable.

This movie was a one, but I only gave it three stars, because I did not like the way the movie ended.

Quite enjoyable! It tells the story of a soldier (Sam) trying to re-establish himself after getting out of the military, linking up with his interpreter from the war who now lives in New York, and falling in love with the interpreters niece Amira. It's fun and funny- you wonder how her religious belief will play a role in the outcome...
