Movie Info

Starring Maz Jobrani, David tells the story of Daud, a religious Muslim boy growing up in Brooklyn, New York. Through inadvertent circumstances he develops a friendship with an orthodox Jewish boy who mistakes Daud for being Jewish. 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 (4) | 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.

Eye for Film

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.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

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.
