I would've liked to write a full review of this film, but I chose to ride the zeitgeist and write about Leaving Neverland instead. But, after a slow opening 20 minutes (I nearly fell asleep, actually), this film turns into a gut punch. Its depiction of a childhood in poverty in urban Lebanon is devastating, with an incredible performance by its young lead. It's an indictment of toxic parents, but an even broader, searing condemnation of industrial societies that lack a safety net at every level for their most vulnerable (children and refugees both).
