Laila's Birthday

Because You d Laila's Birthday
Animation Drama 20081h 11mOn: Kanopy Tags: Religion Country: Palestine 

"At eight o'clock, it's Laila's birthday, okay?" Palestinian judge turned cab driver Abu Laila's wife reminds her husband. But on his young daughter's birthday, like any day, Abu faces a nerve-wracking shift in a Ramallah yellow cab armed only with an ex-jurist's misplaced pride, a father's loyalty, and a sticker reminding passengers that smoking and carrying AK-47s are prohibited. Rather than address politics or document holy war heroics and villainy, Laila's Birthday focuses on the toll that the unending Palestinian-Israeli conflict extracts from civilians clinging to both employment and a semblance of normal life amidst chaos and corruption, missile attacks and bursts of gunfire.Laila's Birthday featuring Mohammed Bakri and Areen Omari is streaming with subscription on Kanopy, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's an animation and drama movie with an average IMDb audience rating of 6.5 (432 votes) and was well received by critics.
