From A To B (2015)
Wednesday 25th November 2015
Having screened to sold-out audiences at this year's prestigious BFI London Film Festival, From A To B, released on DVD by StudioCanal on 30th November 2015, is the second feature by British-Emirati director Ali F. Mostafa (City of Life) about the power of friendship across an ever-changing landscape. With riveting debut performances from its Middle Eastern leads, this is a must-see road movie filled with speedbumps, breakdowns, wrong turns, shady mechanics and a camel or two along the way...!
Five years after the loss of his best friend Hady, Omar decides to take the road trip they always talked about, but never got to take. Just days away from the birth of his first child, he reaches out to his estranged high school friends Jay and Ramy to take the road trip in Hady's memory.
Jay, now a playboy/ wannabe DJ, and Ramy, an #activist (with 737 twitter followers!), take some convincing, but finally agree to the trip. The boys decide to drive from Abu Dhabi - via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria to arrive in Beirut, on what would have been Hady's twenty-fifth birthday.
If all of this doesn't drive them crazy, it might just bring them closer.
