“The Judge” is a thoughtful, sympathetic study. – The Guardian

“The Judge” provides rare insight into Shari’a law (Islamic law), an often misunderstood legal framework for Muslims, told through the eyes of the first woman judge to be appointed to the Middle East’s religious courts. The film intimately portrays Judge Kholoud Al-Faqih’s trials and tribulations in achieving justice for women within the Shari’a courts of the West Bank, detailing in verité courtroom drama the resistance that she and her male counterpart, a progressive Sheik, face daily.
