    Being a Saudi girl myself I didn't know what to expect, but honestly it was quiet good. The way they portrayed how it goes behind the closed doors of girls school so real, like I saw my whole life flashing in front of me: You have to cover your face, you have to wear fully covered abaya... etc, etc. Funny thing that most of you know by now that we don't have movie theaters here in Saudi Arabia, so I got invited to the screening in the U.S embassy. So I watched a Saudi movie directed by Saudi female director with a Saudi audience in Home but not quiet home. That kind of thing only happens here.

    Good job Haifa.

    A fascinating, but pretty frightening, window into Saudi culture. Major props to Haifaa al-Mansour for making this bravely feminist film. 9 years 10 months ago

    I wonder how long it will be when the Middle East looks back on films like this and views it the same way the west views the works of Jane Austen?

    The family tree element was heartbreaking enough.
