"[T]here’s enough dramatic energy here to power a small village." — Variety "If the competing topics come together in a sometimes chaotic mix... the entire affair is nevertheless brilliantly held together by the performance of lead actress Veracity Butcher, who makes of Marjoun a strong survivor, rather than victim, leading by example as she strikes a blow for women – and Arab and Arab American women, in particular – everywhere." — Hammer to Nail "[T]he image of a girl in a hijab riding a motorbike transforms Marjoun into a modern-day James Dean." — The National "Walking through the monastery in a black hijab, Marjoun is a clear symbol of Arab Muslim women’s place in the struggle against systematic racism in the States. Throughout the movie, Marjoun has been haunted by an unjust legal system, prejudices, institutional barriers, and cultural expectations. She just might be able to make it, but she forever carries with her a burden beyond her control." — Women's Media Center
