The Stoning of Soraya M.

June 3, 2009 | NeW Staff

A friend recently told me about a new movie coming out, The Stoning of Soraya M.  It is about one woman’s stoning in Iran.  Here is the website.  This movie looks like it will both serve as a reminder of how good American women have it and highlight how women are treated in some other nations.

Here is a description of the movie,

“In a world of secrecy, corruption and injustice, a single courageous voice can tell a true story that changes everything.

This is what lies at the heart of the emotionally charged experience of THE STONING OF SORAYA M. Based on an incredible true story, this powerful tale of a village’s persecution of an innocent woman becomes both a daring act of witness and a compelling parable about mob rule. Who will join forces with the plot against her, who will surrender to the mob, and who will dare to stand up for what is right. It is both a classic fable of good and evil and an inspiring tribute to the many fighting against injustice all around the world, THE STONING OF SORAYA M. was a rousing runner-up to ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as the Audience Favorite at the Toronto Film Festival.”
