The Infidel (UK, 2010)

Directed by Josh Appignanesi. Cast: Omid Djalili, Richard Schiff, Archie Panjabi, Igal Naor, Amit Shah. Meet Mahmud Nasir, loving husband, doting father, and something of a relaxed Muslim. He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is a true Muslim. After his mother's death, Mahmud finds his birth certificate, which reveals that he was adopted at birth and he's Jewish, with the real name of Solly Shimshillewitz! Enlisting the help of a local Jewish cab driver to help discover his roots--while trying to hide them from his friends and family--Mahmud finds his crisis of identity proves a little more than he can handle. 105 min.
