Critic Reviews of "May In The Summer"Chicago ReaderApril 16, 2015
Dabis's character comes off as a self-serving fantasy.Seattle TimesSeptember 04, 2014
Dabis covers a lot of ground as a storyteller while delivering a smart, focused performance.Arizona RepublicSeptember 04, 2014

Notable chiefly for its knowing, comfortable depictions of female relationships, sibling relationships, familial relationships. Also its determination to rise above some of its more sitcommy plot points.Detroit NewsAugust 29, 2014
You believe in these people, you care about them and their struggles. And in the end, you wish them all the best.Los Angeles TimesAugust 28, 2014

A film that pulls us in with a sweet and powerful story where major tent poles of religion and politics are presented in a strong but subtle way.Under the RadarSeptember 18, 2014
[May In The Summer] unfortunately lacks the emotional depth for a satisfying resolution.Film-Forward.comAugust 29, 2014
Refreshingly normal middle-class family in modern Amman and diversity of people give the familial dynamics added interest for a rare and lovely, if mild, view from Jordan.
