The Citizen movie scene

Khaled Nabawy focuses on Agnes Bruckner in The Citizen.

Writer/director Sam Kadi’s 2012 debut drama The Citizen stars Agnes Bruckner (The Woods), Khaled Nabawy (Fair Game), William Atherton (Ghostbusters), and Cary Elwes (New Year’s Eve).

Yearning to leave behind his life of misfortune in the Middle East, Ibrahim Jarrah (Nabawy) wins the U.S Green Card Lottery for a chance to become an American citizen. He lands in New York City on September 10, 2001…and the events of the September terrorist attacks forever shape the struggles he faces on his journey to capture the American dream.

Inspired by true events, the PG-13-rated The Citizen received a limited release to U.S. theaters in September, 2013 to generally positive reviews from the critics, with the Huffington Post describing the film as “Simply impossible to stop thinking about.”

The DVD features the following bonus features:

  • Khaled Nabawy (“Ibrahim”)
  • Agnes Bruckner (“Diane”)
  • Cary Elwes (“Miller”)
  • Rizwan Manji (“Mo”)
  • Brian Marable (“Mickey”)
