Review: The Stoning of Soraya M. “a grim and solemn duty”

Breitbart’s Chuck DeVore writes that “The Stoning of Soraya M.” is a grim and solemn duty.

Stoning’s premise, repeated with numbing regularity around the world today, is made all the more pressing by the masses of Iranians protesting in the streets today while the brutal Basij militia tries to beat them into submission.  But it’s one thing for a stoning of an accused “adulteress” to occur in Somalia, and quite another for it to happen in the soon-to-be-nuclear-armed Islamic Republic of Iran.  If a nation thinks nothing of stoning women to death for the “crime” of adultery while killing peaceful protesters, it takes no imagination to think of what they will do when in possession of a nuclear bomb.

The movie is based on a true story. Why we continue to bend and strain not to offend a government that encourages and condones such barbaric behavior is beyond me.

  1. I just saw the film an hour ago! Very powerful and terrifying – the scenes in which she is stoned to death are pretty graphic. If The One thinks that this murderous regime in Tehran is one which we can negotiate with he is a freaking idiot (come to think of it he already is).

  2. I’m anxious to see this too.

    Paladin – your comment here is word-for-word the exact same as a comment by “speranza” at LGF.
