Plot Summary

Pulled between his strict Muslim upbringing by his father (Roger Guenveur Smith) and the normal social life he's never had, Tariq Mahdi (Evan Ross) enters college in a state of confusion. New relationships with Muslims and non-Muslims alike challenge his already shaken ideals, and the estrangement with his mother (Nia Long) and sister troubles him. When the attacks of 9/11 happen without warning, Tariq is forced to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life.

Fresh: There's an undeniable potency to the blunt-instrument melodrama of Mooz-lum. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Feb 10, 2011

Fresh: A potent feature debut for writer-director Qasim Basir, "Mooz-lum" attacks Islamist extremism while offering audiences a rare and illuminating depiction of life as a Muslim in America. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Feb 10, 2011

Fresh: Sensitive performances smooth out the dramatic rough spots of this well-intentioned, racially-charged drama. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 24, 2011
