Fremont (PG)

Brought to life by the empathetic efforts of a talented cast and further distinguished by striking black-and-white cinematography, Fremont takes a thoughtful - and wryly funny - look at the immigrant experience.

A former US military translator stationed in Afghanistan returns to San Francisco to put her life back in order. Working at a fortune cookie factory, in a moment of sudden revelation, she decides to send out a special message via cookie.

Cast: Jeremy Allen White, Gregg Turkington, Anaita Wali Zada, Hilda Schmelling, Siddique Ahmed, Taban Ibraz, Avis See-tho, Timur Nusratty, Eddie Tang

Director: Babak Jalali

★★★★ "It’s the kind of independent film which we haven’t seen a lot of lately, endowed with intimacy and a kind of dreamy charm." GUARDIAN

★★★★ "A wry, Jarmuschian musing on the human connections and possibilities that spark in the most unexpected places...utterly delightful" OBSERVER UK

★★★★ "This is a sweet, low-key charmer with a winning, achingly sympathetic performance from novice actress Zada at its centre." TIMES UK

★★★★ "In many ways Fremont is advocating the importance of accepting that a life can be both average and fulfilling." EYE FOR FILM

★★★★ "The script is especially sharp when it comes to examining the ways that refugees get pigeon-holed as saints or sinners." EVENING STANDARD

★★★★ "Fremont has the feel of a hip indie movie from the 1980s heyday of Jim Jarmusch: shot in black and white with a wry, absurdist eye." FINANCIAL TIMES

★★★★ "[a] lovely wry portrait of an Afghan refugee looking for love" ARTS DESK
