The War Within

The War Within (2005)

After he's mistakenly arrested on suspicion of terrorism, Hassan (Ayad Akhtar), a Pakistani student, is so angry and offended that he joins the ranks of a New York-based terrorist cell that's planning an attack. But keeping his new life secret from his former best friend, Sayeed -- who's living the American Dream in New Jersey -- proves difficult, especially after Hassan falls in love with Sayeed's sister (Nandana Sen).
My Two Cents: Balanced and well-acted film that lends a face to a macrocosm that we see only snippets of on the news.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 8/10
