Tribeca On Demand: Find Out Why You Should Watch ‘The Infidel’

by | April 30, 2010 at 11:25 PM | Comcast On Demand, The Movies

It’s the final weekend of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, but you don’t have to bustle through Manhattan to see some of the great film offerings here. Instead, you can just dial up hilarious and unique comedies like The Infidel right through your Comcast cable system via Video On Demand.

Why should you watch The Infidel? British comedian Omid Djalili, who stars as a Muslim who discovers he was born a Jew, and The West Wing veteran Richard Schiff, who plays his contentious neighbor who eventually tries to teach the man how to be properly Jewish, gave us the answer in this interview right here.

If that doesn’t convince you, maybe hearing from the men behind the film, i.e. screenwriter (and British celebrity) David Baddiel and director Josh Appignanesi, will shed more light on the subject and convince you to partake of this mistaken identity comedy featuring “a Muslim Homer Simpson.”

Watch the trailer for The Infidel right here, and then watch it on Comcast On Demand right now!
