  • Film Review: 'Rosewater'

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - The punishing ordeal of Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari -- imprisoned for 118 days on charges of espionage -- is brought to the screen with impressive tact and intelligence by writer-director Jon Stewart in "Rosewater," . Largely a two-hander between Bahari (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) and the interrogator who puts him through a gauntlet of soul-crushing mindgames, Stewart's confident, superbly acted debut feature works as both a stirring account of human endurance and a topical reminder of the risks faced by journalists in pursuit of the truth, minus the caper antics and flag waving of Ben Affleck's populist Oscar winner. Strong reviews and smart, targeted marketing should help this Nov. 7 Open Road release find its niche with politically savvy adult moviegoers, and perhaps a dark-horse position in the awards-season derby.
