This movie won the best director prize at the Venice Film Festival 2009 and was the official selection of both Toronto Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival 2010.

The book was written during the summer of 1978 in Paris.  After the revolution, when the writer went back to Iran, she was imprisoned.
The book and movie are both banned in Iran.  

Have a great day.  How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
