Powerful Movie About Brutality of Iranian Regime: The Stoning of Soraya M.

April 11, 2010

I just finished watching The Stoning of Soraya M., a powerful, emotional movie about the brutal stoning of an innocent woman in an Iranian village.

Set in 1986 Iran at the start of Khomeini’s reign, director Cyrus Nowrasteh’s drama tells the true story of Soraya (Mozhan Marnò), whose husband plots to have her falsely accused of adultery so he can divorce her and marry a young girl. French journalist Freidoune (Jim Caviezel) is pulled into Soraya’s tragic story when he meets a desperate woman named Zahra (Shohreh Aghdashloo).

You can rent the DVD from Netflix or watch it online.
