Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The whole movie marches to that same, sad rhythm of unalterable horror, illuminated by Joel Ransom's brutal and beautiful cinematography. The sum is difficult to watch.

- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, June 26, 2009

Fresh: With the melancholy cry of a sad cello, the film opens with a golden sun rising over the hills of a remote Iran landscape...It's a devastating story, powerfully told

- Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Fresh: The Stoning Of Soraya M. hits you in the gut. It's a phenomenal piece of cinema, but there are many who will read about it and think, "I don't need to go there."

A powerful story of what is the possible lives of many more than we realize! Difficult at times to watch, but worth the effort. Tells a story few know but many need to hear!

A very disturbing film that shows the pitfalls of the Islamic religion, shortly after the fall in 1988 a man accuses his wife of adultery in order to be rid of her so he can marry a 14 year old, shows village corruption between mayor and so called religious leaders. Allah Akbar my ***. The movie itself and acting is worth 5 Stars. Question is to you have the Balls to watch it and learn the truth of what Americans call being tolerant. 5 Stars

Not since watching United 93 has a film been so disturbing. This film is an account of the cruelty done towards women in Arab countries. Women in these countries if they commit adultery get stoned to death, a despicable and inhumane act. This film made me feel uneasy from start to finish as by the end, you know exactly whats going to happen. The Stoning Of Soraya M. is a true account of a woman falsely accused of adultery so that her husband could marry a 14 year old girl. A hard film to watch, Stoning Of Soraya M. is an important film to watch as it exposes these despicable acts of inhuman torture on innocent women. An important film, The stoning Of Soraya M. will definitely make you think.
