THE STONING OF SORAYA M. (2009) Starring Shoreh Aghdashloo, James Caviezel; Rated R; 116 minutes
A world of secrecy, corruption and injustice lies at the heart of the emotionally charged experience of this film. Based on an incredible true story, this powerful tale of an Iranian village’s persecution of an innocent woman becomes both a daring act of witness and a compelling parable about mob rule. When Soraya’s husband brings false charges that end in tragedy, her aunt Zahra tells a reporter to try to get word to the outside world to fight injustice against women in her country.
