FROM THE CRITICS
Tim Grierson of The Screen Daily says “In its broad strokes, ‘The Idol’ may seem like a familiar a-star-is-born tale, but at just about every turn Hany Abu-Assad transcends that simplicity for a more moving, complex examination of what Mohammad Assaf had to go through to even enter the competition — and what the idea of ‘winning’ means for someone faced with daily oppression.”
