  • As Gamal, himself raised in a leper colony, knowingly navigates the uncomfortable glares he encounters along the way, "Yomeddine" (Arabic for "judgment day") takes an affecting path toward belonging and acceptance.

  • While it's a novelty to see a film with a protagonist played by a non-professional actor who actually still lives in a leper colony, this isn't enough to make this tonally wobbly road movie feel like it can live up to the expectations...
