The Stoning of Soraya M.

Everything about this film looks intense. Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Nativity Story) and James Caviezel (The Count of Monte Cristo) are two underrated actors and when you pair them together I'm sure they'll bring the necessary depth to their characters, especially in weighty piece like this.

The Stoning of Soraya M. is a drama set in 1986 Iran and centered on a man, Sahebjam (Caviezel), whose car breaks down in a remote village and enters into a conversation with Zahra (Aghdashloo), who relays to him the story about her niece, Soraya, whose arranged marriage to an abusive tyrant had a tragic ending.
