From the Daily Dot

Netflix's Layla M. is about teenage rebellion gone awry. Layla is just coming into her own as a person and realizing that her own beliefs don't quite line up with the rest of her family and friends. In the search to find like-minded people, Layla leaves home and gets married. Her new life takes her far from home where she finds herself on the edge of terrorism, as her husband's commitment to their religion is more radical than her own. The movie is a compelling look at a story most audiences haven't seen before. Even though the film feels like it's just getting started by the time it ends, it's worth your time.
