Indian girl, he hires an escort, Sue, to pose as his fiancée..
Review: A Sikh family is stranded in the desert,
in the South West, and no one will pull over and give
them a jump. The patriarch's youngest son attributes
it to the fact that they are of color and that their
father is being perceived as a terrorist, due to his
turban, dark complexion and the fact that the family
clearly isn't blonde haired and blue eyed.
loved the film American made. At the begining I
felt very sad for the father,being discriminated against
is an awful feeling. I was not however very surprised
by what the people were doing by driving by, although
we as Americans are suppose to very advanced and very
in touch with culture, at times we just aren't, granted
after 9/11 it did make alot of people un trustworthy,
but to stereotype a man for wearing a turban is just
ignorant, and cruel!
