A solid, powerfully acted political drama about human endurance in the face of ideological oppression.

Stewart and cinematographer Bobby Bukowski cover it all in a straightforward, watchable way, the performances are all sincere and solid and the situation is easy to respond to emotionally.

It's a good story about persevering, and using one of our most powerful tools to do so: humor.

A certain narrative conventionality is perhaps inevitable with this type of material, but Rosewater is helped immensely by Gael García Bernal's assured, lived-in lead performance.
