  • While there’s much to enjoy here – particularly in the touching performance of Hiam Abbass – there’s also plenty that is cliched and forced. show more

  • As much as May in the Summer is a comedy — May and her mischievous sisters may remind you of The Three Stooges — it is also an intimate and demystifying look at life in Amman, where the movie was actually filmed. show more

  • Cherien Dabis is least successful at connecting her character May's marital crisis to the rumblings of her repressed heritage. show more
