A whip-smart British slapstick comedy, Four Lions takes aim at Jihadi suicide bombers and illuminates the war on terror through satire and farce. The film has been lauded by liberals, conservatives, Muslims, Christians, servicemen and national security experts alike as ‘laugh-out-loud funny.’ While hugely entertaining, it draws from real life and demonstrates that home grown extremists have many shortcomings but are also human.
Following its sell-out success as the buzz hit of the Sundance Film Festival, Four Lions packed the coveted closing night slot of South by Southwest, won the Independent Camera Award at Karlovy Vary and was voted Best Narrative Feature by audiences at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
