Abstract:

This is the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, FOUR LIONS is a comic tour de force; it shows that - while terrorism is about ideology - it can also be about idiots. . Winner of Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer at the BAFTA Awards. Winner of Best Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Film Awards. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema - Dramatic at the Sundance Film Festival. "The very existence of Four Lions is an act of audacity; the fact that it's also smart, humane, and frequently hilarious is nothing short of a miracle."--Dana Stevens, Slate.
