Some movies just have their dream time. China Syndrome during the Three Mile Island fear, Wag the Dog during the Clinton Lewinsky affair, and now the Stoning of Soraya M during the Iranian fury. World Magazine notes: "Few films experience as timely a debut as The Stoning of Soraya M. is set to make on June 26. While women in Iran are protesting the suspect election of a president whose policies have been particularly oppressive to them, the true story of a woman who was wrongly put to death by Islamic officials in the 1980s seems especially relevant." World Magazine unfolds the story behind the story.
I've seen the film which will be getting its promotion and reviews next week. Since I'm leaving for vacation I won't say much except to ask if God or the devil (in one of his many forms) is the central character. Nick will have something to say with expected interviews with Jim Caviezel and Steve McEveety, producer.
