rock-the-kasbahI got to see this beautiful movie on my birthday with my dad and brother. Wow, is it worth watching.

Bill Murray stars as an agent desperate to make it in the music business, even as an aging man. He flies his singer to Afghanistan to perform for the military, only to have her freak out and go home (Zooey Deschanel). While he’s there, he hears the voice of a wonderful singer, but she’s forbidden to do so by her religion.

Without giving the entire show away, it displays the discrimination and harsh living conditions facing the Middle East in a true story of a woman’s trip to performing on their version of American Idol. Go see it!
