    I don't think this is something I'd come back to and watch over and over again. But Kate Winslet was great as a self-centered and, at times, delusional mother who still really does care for her kids. Interesting and well acted.

    I enjoyed the movie. I watched it a while ago so I don't have much to offer. I remember thinking that it was very pretty. The young girls were adorable.

    Good indie movie that portrays "Arabs" and Muslims in a humanizing light. It was refreshing to see these people of color portrayed as something other than terrorists and foils in some unimaginative action film. "Kinky" made me a fan of Saïd Taghmaoui and made me respect Kate Winslet more as an actress. I was particularly surprised (and proud, actually) to see North Africans actually calling themselves "African." I'd love to see more films like this.
