4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, 22 Feb. 2011
By 
This review is from: Not Without My Daughter [DVD] (DVD)
This movie is set about 30 years ago, in the aftermath of the Iran Revolution and stars Sally Field as an American woman who marries an Iranian man. He wants to go back to Iran, so she agrees with him (thinking it is only temporary, and unaware of the reality of Iran and what it is like for women there)

Once she gets there, she realizes she has walked into a trap. Her husband also does a near-180 spin personality-wise, becoming more like the stereotypical tyrannical Muslim husband, and since she is a woman, the wife lacks opportunities that were taken for granted in America. She is desperate to go back (and take her daughter with her) but Hubby says no, and under Iranian law, she is pretty much screwed.

Of course, she refuses to give up, and is determined to have a better life for herself and her daughter, which is what this story centers on (as if the title wasn't hint enough) Overall it's actually a pretty great movie, I just wish the ending could have been longer and more substantial.
