The Stoning of Soraya M., opening in limited release tomorrow, is a powerful drama that has become extremely relevant in the wake of the turmoil in Iran, accentuating the importance of getting the reality of the situations in this isolated society out to the world. It’s the story of Zahra (Academy Award Nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo) a brave Iranian woman caught up in a deadly conspiracy who takes a chance on trusting an outsider journalist to get the truth brought to light when it is being stifled by the people in her remote village.
If you want to know more, there will be a live chat with writer/director Cyrus Nowrasteh on Facebook today at 4pm PST, 7pm EST. You can RSVP for it here. It should be incredibly interesting and well worth your time.
