Faour's performance as Muna Farah, a Palestinian immigrant to the United States in the 2009 independent film Amreeka, received high marks from film critics. American film critic Kenneth Turan argues that, while all of the casting choices "are excellent, [...] it is Palestinian actress Nisreen Faour as the irrepressible Muna who truly owns the picture".
