Rosewater

Rated R • 103 minutes

Tehran-born Bahari is a 42-year-old broadcast journalist with Canadian citizenship living in London. In June 2009, Bahari returns to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who is the prime challenger to controversial incumbent president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi's supporters rise up to protest Ahmadinejad's victory, Bahari endures great personal risk by submitting camera footage of the unfolding street riots to the BBC. Bahari is soon arrested by police, who proceed to torture and interrogate him over the next 118 days.
