The Miscreants

89 minutes 2011

In this low-budget Moroccan drama (2011), three Islamic radicals kidnap a group of progressive-minded stage actors, then hole up with them in an abandoned farmhouse while awaiting orders to kill them. The movie feels like something you might watch a college theater troupe perform in a dormitory basement; the talky script addresses a number of hot-button issues, generally in hysterical fashion, and the acting is overblown but undeniably heartfelt. First-time writer-director Mohcine Besri clearly has a lot on his mind, but he can't figure out how to dramatize his ideas effectively. In Arabic with subtitles.
