Jinn holds several beautiful elements, especially in its central mother-daughter story.
Jinn is a special little film, one that never lets its complicated, contradictory characters become abstractions, but instead revels in all the disparate elements that make them who they are.
Mu'min shows great sensitivity as a director, drawing a remarkably carefree and naturalistic performance from her young star that makes her sympathetic, even when her character is behaving in selfish and hurtful ways.
There's nothing preachy about Jinn, even though Nijla Mu'min's elegant debut feature is about a teenager coming to terms with her mother's newly embraced religion.
Renee has a superhuman charisma. Yet the young actor makes audiences root for her while also allowing Summer to be rude and thoughtless.
There are good, admirable intentions, and there's the movie that results from them. Sad to say, Jinn consistently lets down its premise and performers.
Renee turns in a radiant lead performance, the story spotlights underrepresented POCs, and Mu'min often flashes hints of her potential as a filmmaker.
Jinn quivers with joy and uncertainty, confidence and shame, delivering exactly what makes independent cinema exciting: a bright new voice with a bold vision.
Jinn is a colorful portrait of the complexities inherent in life, love, and religion that succeeds as a character study far more than as a plot-driven story.
Jinn requires ... a willingness to observe not just the physical representation of the world, but the emotions emanating from every piece of the frame.
Jinn is an emotionally charged film of moving brilliance with a trio of women, both on-screen and off,
At a time when Islam has become weaponized as a synonym for ISIS, we need [these] glimpses at its positivity and humanity.
