Movies and TV Shows with Arab Leads
The need for accurately portrayed Arab characters is clear—and this list puts titles with Arab actors and experiences front and center. Like many underrepresented groups in media, Arabs and Arab Americans have long been portrayed stereotypically, but the entries on this list disregard that tendency in favor of more authentic storytelling. From tender stories of romance to tales of family and sisterhood, there's humor, grit, and a ton of heart to be found on this list.
