The trailer makes this movie look a lot better than it actually is. The actors are all really good but the story isn’t as compelling as I thought it was going to be. I also thought that Kate Hudson, even though I love her normally, could have been cut from this movie. Other than adding a bit of heartbreak for Ahmed, her part was just annoying and not needed. I also wish Liev Schreiber had a larger part other than basically helping link the stories together in a framing device.
