Unfortunately Shokrina's sense of style periodically collapses, and the film falls prey to the worst kind of models.

Shokrian, who was born in Tehran, is trying to say something about assimilation and xenophobia, but the predictable story and stereotypical characters do him in.

As much as the film would like to blow the lid off immigrant misery, it deals only in caricatures.

While providing a fresh perspective on a different troubled time in our history, this challenging but flawed film nonetheless manages to be a much needed affirmation of the American Dream.

Shokrian ... possesses a sharp eye for detail and a lacerating wit (dulled, unfortunately, by the repetition of ideas and the hammering of points).
