PC Friday Night Movie: The Stoning of Soraya M.

It's almost the weekend, and I thought I'd post an interesting film I found for you all to be able to watch. This movie shares the harsh realities of women living in patriarchal societies --and no I'm not talking about North America, for all the whining feminists out there-- set in Iran 1986, this film depicts an issue that is STILL an issue TODAY. Give it a go and try watching; unlike most things coming out of that region these days-- it's got English subtitles built-in so we can all keep up!


"A drama set in 1986 Iran and centered on a man, Sahebjam, whose car breaks down in a remote village and enters into a conversation with Zahra, who relays to him the story about her niece, Soraya, whose arranged marriage to an abusive tyrant had a tragic ending."
