The Stoning of Soraya M

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0) posted a story on Friday about the movie, The Stoning of Soraya M set for release this weekend.  The movie is based on a true story.  The book telling the story was published move than ten years ago.  The movie is the story of:

"...Soraya (Mozhan MarnĂ², "Charlie Wilson's War") a woman who is in an impossible situation. Soraya's husband wants to divorce her so he can marry a 14-year-old virgin. Given her options (live in destitute poverty with her children or sanctioned prostitution to provide for them) Soraya refuses to give her husband the divorce. But in her post-Iranian Revolution world, the men rule with an iron fist and the legal system is stacked against her."

I suspect this is going to be difficult movie to watch, but it is a story that needs to be told.  The film does not focus on the violence of the stoning, but instead on how the stoning affects the people involved.  The movie is in limited release now, but should be in wider release next weekend.
