In 1948, a woman named Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass) transforms her father's home into an orphanage and school for Palestinian children, naming it the Dar al-Tifel Institute. Many years later, a teenager named Miral (Freida Pinto), who has grown up immersed in the institute's peaceful ways, goes to a refugee camp as a teacher. When she falls in love with a zealous political activist, Miral must choose between violence and the peaceful path that her mentor, Mama Hind, taught her.

  • Dramatically but unevenly explores the lives of four Palestinian women during the years of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. show more

  • So much of Abbas' dialogue consists of stiff platitudes (the script is by journalist Rula Jebreal, based on her novel of the same name); the character she's playing has been reduced to a dull, saintly figure, and not even Abbas can find a way out of that miniature prison. show more

  • Miral stumbles, both thematically and stylistically. The two things that undermine the director's balance? Peace and love. show more

    Timothy McVeigh? Oh please he was a wackjob with a few wackjob followers. No comparison to a race of people who teach terrorism from the age of 3 years old.
