Jinn holds several beautiful elements, especially in its central mother-daughter story.

November 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Jinn is a special little film, one that never lets its complicated, contradictory characters become abstractions, but instead revels in all the disparate elements that make them who they are.

Mu'min shows great sensitivity as a director, drawing a remarkably carefree and naturalistic performance from her young star that makes her sympathetic, even when her character is behaving in selfish and hurtful ways.

There's nothing preachy about Jinn, even though Nijla Mu'min's elegant debut feature is about a teenager coming to terms with her mother's newly embraced religion.

Renee has a superhuman charisma. Yet the young actor makes audiences root for her while also allowing Summer to be rude and thoughtless.

There are good, admirable intentions, and there's the movie that results from them. Sad to say, Jinn consistently lets down its premise and performers.
