    Enlightening, I think, but can't help wondering if the awful depiction of Afghanistan is how "they" want us to believe it is. I think not, and I certainly don't want to go see for myself, but still . . . . . . . . . Interesting movie either way, and if the depiction is accurate, incredible to think there is such backwardness in existence in 2012.

    The basic premise of the story was good, although the acting wasn't great. The change in Juliette Lewis' character seemed too drastic.

    Wow. Amazing movie. A simple, touching story. Honest. Incredibly moving. And it's a home-grown Canadian film - go Canada!

    An interesting movie! It's great to see an actress like Lewis starring in a highly dramatic movie such as this one. Its also great to see that this film centralizes around a controversial issue that depicts a view of one woman's survival and journey, without undermining a religion that is beautiful and serene of itself. Like all existing religions throughout the world, its just the politics, actions, and belief structures of certain individuals that belittle, cruelly impose, and distort, the original intentions of God's words and message. The structural belief of humanity is tested in the form of law(s), and basic compassion is overlooked in some forms. Layla Alizada, Juliette Lewis, and Brian Markinson stars. Worth seeing!
