All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Wajib gives an unfussily illuminating snapshot of modern-day Nazareth, where a majority Arab population - most seen here are Christian - has found ways to get along under the fiddly, capricious restrictions of the Israeli state.

An intimate, well-played disquisition on what it means to be a Palestinian abroad versus a Palestinian at home.

August 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Annemarie Jacir's characters may not leave the city of Nazareth as they take a circular road trip in Wajib but the emotional distance they travel is considerable.

April 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A whip-smart, moving comedy of family and community.

December 29, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Naturalistic, nicely paced and well played by the lead actors, Wajib succeeds at making us invest in its fragile father/son relationship and willing them to acknowledge that there is more that unites them than threatens to drive them apart.

December 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Wajib is a day-long road trip into a very diverse Palestinian community, which is sometimes treated with a subtle and slightly dark humour; it's a community that the father struggles to keep united and the son simply no longer understands
