Breaking Fast ★★★

Mike Mosallam's 'Breaking Fast' uses classic, recognizable romantic comedy conventions to tackle discussion on religion and sexuality. Pretty lightweight and a little too on-the-nose at times but it's a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece of filmmaking with actors Haaz Sleiman and Michael Cassidy have a natural, unforced chemistry that you can't help but invest in.
