    A new movie made called "MOOZ-lum". The title is making fun of how non-Muslims often mispronounce the words "Muslim" by using a "z" instead of an "s" in the words. it's about a young man who grows up in a very strict Islamic environment with his dad. When he goes to college, he drifts away from Islam...but eventually learns that it does not have to be as hard as his dad once made it. But, as he is beginning to explore Islam again, the 9/11 attacks occur...and he has to make some decisions about his life...I really wanted to post a link to the preview of the movie on youtube...but right now i am not able to post a link.Anyways,the movie look very interesting and realistic.It stars Danny Glover,Nia Long and Evan Ross.

    Heard about this movie and ''MOOz-lum'' is more an America thing, just like pronouncing Iran as EYE-Ran and eye-rack(Iraq) grates my nerves every time i hear it!

    Saw the trailer: Nia long plays the protagonist mother, I recognize the actor who plays the father but I can't recall his name..he is very fair skinned and has/had a one man show on Broadway or something like that.

    And i believe the story is autobiographical.
