"The beauty of AMREEKA is in first-time director Cherien Dabias' nimble touch....The result is a convincing and bittersweet look at the struggles of a pair of Palestinian immigrants and their extended family of not-so-recent arrivals."USA Today "This piquant film brings a keen and serious eye as well as that feeling for affectionate human comedy to this fraught situation, smartly avoiding both stridency and sentimentality in the process -- it's an elegant balancing act."Los Angeles Times "[T]he good humor, generosity, and love Dabis bestows on her characters in this assured first feature are uniquely hers -- the mark of a talent to watch." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] heart-warming and funny first feature....Much of this warmth comes from the actress Nisreen Faour."Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "Filled out with fantastic performances and truly charming characters, AMREEKA's already in great form, but the script's frequent turns from the horrible to the truly lovely make this film memorable and affecting."Box Office "Chief among the film's variegated pleasures is the slow but palpable emergence of Muna's dormant inner spirit, a transformation that the doughy-cheeked Faour effects with a discreet and winning charm."Washington Post29.35247

3 stars out of 5 -- "Abbas continues to impress with her strong acting talent and ability to command the screen with a single stare....She is at the forefront of LEMON TREE and elevates the material..."Box Office "[A]n allegory of Israeli-Palestinian strife....[A] wrenching, richly layered feminist allegory as well as a a geopolitical one."New York Times "[I]t's beautifully shot, crisply paced, and subtly performed by a cast of veterans..." -- Grade: B-A.V. Club "LEMON TREE is in its best moments a sober-hearted take on the righteous blowbacks from whittled-away souls, and a movie that invariably rights itself with each return to the beautifully gaze of Abbass."Los Angeles Times "Based on a true story, LEMON TREE explores the painful human detail of life in a society warped by terrorism....Riklis has made a powerful film..."Washington Post29.27502
