Brotherhood (2019)

The eldest son of a family returns home from Syria with his new and 14 year old bride in tow. This precipitates a new falling out with his father.

Beautiful to look at drama is a small slice of life. It is a compelling look at a side of Muslim life we don’t get to see often, specifically what happens when a family is torn apart by differing levels of religiousness. I was intrigued the story to wish that this was longer. I would love a longer discussion of how families cope when beliefs are so different, particularly since the media currently tends to classify Muslim existence as purely good or bad with no grey in between.

Recommended if you get a chance to see it.
