“I saw The Stoning of Soraya M. a few months back at a screening, and it was so incredibly poignant that just watching the newly-released trailer brought tears to my eyes. Tears for the woman upon whom this film is based, and tears for many others like her, throughout the world, who have no voice. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Stoning of Soraya M. is well-paced overall and does a fantastic job of bringing the audiences into Sorayau0026#39;s helpless situation, as we, just as helplessly, witness the malicious or cowardly decisions of others that will eventually lead to her demise.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film treats Islam with sensitivity and in no way implicates the religion itself in the brutal practice of stoning. Shohreh Aghdashloou0026#39;s character, a Muslim, decries the stoning as against the will of God.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is important to note that the film accurately depicts a stoning, and is therefore not for the feint of heart, but seekers of truth and justice will appreciate the candor with which it portrays the gruesome nature of the heinous practice.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI commend Cyrus Nowrasteh, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and the filmu0026#39;s producers for their courage in making this film. Thanks to you, u0026quot;the world will know.u0026quot;”
