Two teenage schoolmates in Iran get involved in things likely to attract the
of the Morality Police in this provocative drama.
- With "Circumstance," writer-director Maryam
Keshavarz offers a taboo-busting snapshot
- of contemporary Tehran — a provocative psychodrama
that's part Iranian "Girls Gone Wild,"
- set just before the 2009 elections.
Shireen (Sarah Kazemy) and Atefeh (Nikohl
- are beautiful teenage schoolmates attracted to each
other — and to a host of things
- considered subversive in their repressive,
male-dominated homeland; at night, the young
- women boldly doff their head scarves, slip into
revealing dresses and then party away in
- an underground dance club.
Winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, CIRCUMSTANCE is a
coming-of-age story that cracks open the hidden, underground world of Iranian
filled with sex, drugs and defiance. From newcomer Maryam Keshavarz, this
of love and defiance unfolds as a wealthy family struggles to contain their
growing sexual rebellion and her brother’s dangerous obsession.
Farsi with English subtitles.
