Critic Reviews for Layla M.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (10)

  • A brisk, involving film that depicts "radicalization" from a humanist angle while applying proper consideration to the political and cultural currents from which such transformations stem.

    May 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An astute detailing of a Muslim woman's radicalization in Amsterdam and beyond.

    September 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Layla M. is as topical as it is heartbreaking. This atypical coming-of-age story is a fantastic debut for Nora El Koussour.

    March 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The brilliance of this film and El Koussour's performance is that Layla's M.'s indoctrination to being a wife of a Jihadist is logical, and even relatable.

    February 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • ... the filmmakers do a rather great job getting the audience to understand their lives and minds and often their hearts.

    April 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's a stark reminder that some of the worst choices we can come from universal places of injustice and alienation.
