Naji Abu Nowar জর্দান, 2014's rating of the film Theeb

I hope this beautiful work of art wins its BAFTA and Oscar first film nominations by the double act of Jordanian Naji Abu Nowar and Rupert Lloyd who met when they were only 5 at school in Oxford. They lived with the Bedouin for over a year before filming started. For 1916 in the Ottoman war,they cast the young and very shy Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat from southern Jordan as Theeb, who delivers a truly stunning performance.
