David is a coming of age story at heart about Identity and the many ways it can bring us together as well as break us apart. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for David

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

First feature for director/co-scenarist Joel Fendelman is a middleweight drama that wears its modesty to its advantage, lending a potentially contrived tale a solid grounding in docu-style location capture and the protag's naive p.o.v.

August 30, 2011

David is honest and relatable, and ultimately triggers a response of tolerance and compassion.

Overall effect is a sensitive film with particular appeal to younger audiences.

January 31, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Schematic but smart, and especially interesting in its telling details, as when Daud's bedside alarm clock goes off: Instead of music or a buzz or beep, we hear a muezzin's call to morning prayer.

November 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A spiritual masterwork about the friendship between a Muslim and a Jewish boy and the ways in which it brings unexpected changes into their lives and faith perspectives.
