Movie Rating
Plot Summary
A newly-divorced man travels to Saudi Arabia for a business deal, but finds himself in the process
Director
Star #1

Every so often Tom Hanks will so up in a film that doesn't get a lot of attention or a wide release. This is one of those films, but that doesn't mean it isn't worthy of being seen. Hanks does an outstanding job in his portrayal of a fish out of water that must learn to breathe the air around him.

 

The film shows the audience an interesting glimpse into the life and culture of Saudi Arabia and its people. However the movie doesn't get bogged down in cultural differences or oddities. In fact, the story uses humor to get us through the necessary awkward moments making for a fun and interesting film. In fact, the whole movie is very funny. There are several laugh out loud moments that add to the joy of this film.

 

While this movie isn't as charming or endearing as something like SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, the love story is beautiful and highly compelling. If you are a Tom Hanks fan I recommend you grab a date and go see this movie soon.
