Maryam

Has anyone seen Maryam?

This film seems to mirror my life in odd ways and I’m wondering if anyone can tell me what they thought of it.

"Maryam , written and directed by Ramin Serry, takes place in 1979 and is the story of Mary (Mariam Parris), an Iranian American teenager, pursuing fun and romance in the New Jersey suburbs. Mary’s world is radically transformed, though, when Ali (David Ackert), her fundamentalist Muslim cousin, comes to live with her family at the same time Americans are taken hostage in Iran. American backlash against Iranians and Ali’s disclosure of the family’s dark history force Mary to come to terms with her own unique, culturally-divided identity. "
