Inspired by a true story, a self-centered corporate lawyer is forced to take on a pro-bono case to help a young Afghan woman seek refuge from the tyrannical regime of the Taliban. Together the two women take on a brutal legal system to win asylum.Written by
I agree with the poster below that the INS makes the decisions that it needs to make based on the facts presented, and that in the movie, the asylum-seeking process is made much more difficult for the main character because of the fact that she'd disposed of her identification papers back in Afghanistan. However, I don't think this weakens the movie at all. I think it added an important dimension to it by showing that the asylum-seeking process is difficult, even for people who are deserving of asylum, because it's necessary to weed out terrorists and other potential bad apples. The movie didn't come across to me as liberally biased at all.
I agree that Lewis' character was a little over the top, but overall I thought the movie was very well done.
