I recently watched The Stoning of Soraya M.
, a movie based on a true story about an Iranian village that tries and executes a woman by stoning for adultery. I don't want to write a review about the movie. I do want to express how it made me feel though. If left me with the most powerful feeling of horror, sadness, and anger that a movie has ever given me in my memory.
The stoning is depicted with very little attempt at shielding the audience from the brutality. Do not watch this with your children. But watch it. Much of the movie was spoken in Farsi with English subtitles so you get the full cultural effect.
I would recommend this movie for any adult but I think it will be especially appreciated by atheists.
