The Stoning of Soraya M., Iranian (♦♦♦♦)
This movie made my blood boil. I just could not believe that that man could fabricate such lies to suit his purposes and convince everyone in town of them. That’s the power of a rumor! In this case the rumor had tragic consequences. Even her two sons were given stones to throw at her!
I thought the director of this movie was going to sugar-coat the stoning, but he didn’t shy away one bit. Those scenes are as brutal as they are real. In places where women have no rights, their very lives are in the hands of men capable of such atrocious acts.
