Mo, a practicing Muslim living in West Hollywood, is learning to navigate life post heartbreak. Enter Kal, an All-American guy who surprises Mo by offering to break fast with him during the holy month of Ramadan.

Film Threat called it “…as near a perfect film as one can ask for”:

Breaking Fast is as near a perfect film as one can ask for. The writing is excellent, and the directing is subtle, wringing out the ideal combination of drama and comedy. It is the astounding cast that takes those wonderful building blocks and carries the movie from good to great. Sleiman and Cassidy are perfectly matched together and make for an endearing couple.”

Starry Mag said, “if you give this movie a chance, you won’t regret it. Trust me.”:

“I personally would recommend this film to not only my LGBT friends, but also my straight friends. I feel this is a movie that no matter what your sexuality, religion, or age you can relate to it in some form.”
