The Patience Stone by Atiq Rahimi (2012, 102 min.). In an unnamed country torn apart by war, a young woman (Golshifteh Farahani) watches over her husband, who is left comatose from a gunshot wound. One day, the woman’s vigil changes, and she begins to vent her frustrations about living under his control. Through the words she delivers so audaciously to her husband, the woman seeks to free herself. “A startling fantasy of Muslim feminist empowerment that allows the Iranian-born actress Golshifteh Farahani to put on what amounts to a one-woman show” (The Boston Globe).
