Ever since I saw Sally Field in the TV series The Flying Nun, I have fell in love with this award winning actress, who in this film plays role of a courageous mother who risks her life while fleeing aggression in a foreign land.
What makes this film so compelling is that it is based on a true story, (book also written) and it shows the reality of what life is truly like in other parts of the world, in particular the Middle East. She plays the role of an american woman, who has married a man from Iran. She is duped into believing that they are only vacationing in Iran. When she learns that her husband has decided that he is staying, as well as their daughter, she is all alone without any rights, and is powerless to plea to the authorities, since woman are considered second class citizens in this land native to her husband.
For those who would criticize the film, claiming it is promoting anti-Islamic views, I totally disagree. The mere fact is that this is not a ficticious smear campaign, but is a true story, which needed to be told. Who knows, this film just may save someon else from going through such tragic heartache anf grief.
I reccomend this to anyone who would like to see just how she is able to escape with her precious child, which is nothing less than a miracle. To bad she lost her flying powers!Seriously though, well worth viewing, very riveting entertainment, which is even more spell-binding since this is a re-enactment of an actual event. Kenny.
Has to kidnap his own Wife and Child to make them love him..When an American Woman Betty Mahmoody falls in love and marries a Middle Easterner who lived in the States for 20 years together they have a cute little Girl..when her Hubby swears on the Kuran (sp?) they will return from visiting his Family after 2 weeks she of course believes he values his religion the same way we do here..in the USA one does not swear on the Holy Bible to a lie, but apparently in the middle east one lies in any way they can to get what they want..once he has her and their Daughter there they become his prisoners..he becomes abusive takes her money and her passports leaving her with no escape..finally he says "you can go, but our Daughter stays with me" she finds out to her horror her Daughter could be wed by the time she turns 7..fearful for her Daughters safety and innocense she decides she must escape her Husbands brutality along with her Daughter..want a true look at what life on the other side of the world is like watch this film see how Women are treated in Muslim Countries and be afraid be very afraid..this is a great film for any Woman thinking of visiting a Middle Eeastern Country with her Hubby..DON'T DO IT..at least not until you see this film!!
A disturbing true story based on actual events in the life of Betty Mahmoody. Kept as a virtual prisoner in Iran by her Iranian husband and his family, when offered the chance to escape, refuses unless she can take her daughter as well, making the escape far more dangerous. Sally Field is fabulous as Betty Mahmoody!
Sally Field is simply amazing in this film of how what "appears" to be is NOT what is!
ALL AMERICANS NEED TO WATCH THIS FILM just to see how long there have been other countries
who hate us, hate women and have total disregard for Christianity, the Western way of life.
This is a TRUE STORY! I have seen the actual woman Sally Field portrays...and her story is one that will shake you to the core...especially in today's times when Iraq is clearly back in the news and making it's hatred for America quite known.
The husband of Betty Mahmoody was a doctor in the US. He was "well respected." He "fit in" to the complete American way...until he deicded that he wanted to "visit" Iraq...formerly known as Persia.
Only the Grace of God and the help of many people who still believed in the Persian way of life, not the Iragi way of life, did this brave woman save her own life and get her daughter out of that country and back to the US. I implore everyone to watch this film. For those who don't remember history, it is bound to repeat itself. THIS IS A SCARY, PROVACATIVE FILM and REMEMBER IT IS A TRUE LIFE ACCOUNT OF WHAT THIS WOMAN ENDURED AND SURVIVED! PLEASE BUY OR RENT IT, BUT MAKE SURE YOU AND EVERYONE YOU KNOW SEES IT!
This is the true story about Sally Field’s (book available) attempt to escape from Iran (post Islamic revolution) to the US. Unsuspecting Sally visits Iran with her husband (medical doctor) and only daughter and finds her self as a prisoner of her husband who does not want to return to the US primarily due to guilt of not serving his religious beliefs. Though it is true, the portrayal of Islamic practices in the movie is subject to debate. This could lead to hatred towards Muslims. And the undisputed promotion of western values may lead to wrong conclusions. Though this movie is available in most church video collections, I would have second thoughts about categorizing it as a Christian movie. The acting and the production is great and you never feel bored. Since it is a true plot, as it is always better than fiction.
