Nedjma (Lyna Khoudri starring in Wes Anderson’s upcoming The French Dispatch), an 18-year-old student in 1990s Algeria. She's passionate about fashion design and refuses to let the tragic events of the Algerian Civil War keep her from experiencing a normal life and going out with her friend Wassila. As the social climate changes, she rejects the new bans set by the radicals and decides to fight for her freedom and independence by putting on a fashion show.
This film has such an energy to it... I had a ton of fun watching this and think people will really like it.
