Boy from Heaven

Boy from Heaven 1000 1333 Forest City Film Festival

Political Thriller, Feature Narrative, Best of the World Fests

Crackling with the edge-of-your-seat tension of All the President’s Men or Argo, Tarik Saleh’s Cannes Best Screenplay winner Boy From Heaven quickly asserts itself as one of the best spy thrillers of recent years. This tale of religion and politics colliding in a Game of Thrones-esque grab for power has become so controversial that it caused the filmmaker to be banned from Egypt. When asked about his ban from Egypt, the director said that it was worth it to make this film. Boy From Heaven is an important and powerful indictment of political corruption, all in the package of a heart-pounding thriller that will keep you entertained with its twists and turns.
