Film title

Persepolis


Synopsis

A highly original and brilliant animated portrait of a young girl's coming of age in revolutionary Iran, adapted from an acclaimed graphic novel by exiled Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi, who co-directed the movie too. The story follows Marjane, a smart and strong-willed girl whose life is forever changed when the Shah of Iran is overthrown by the Islamic Revolution of 1979. While far from being supporters of the Shah, Marjane's left-wing parents find their lives even harder under the new regime - and Marjane herself finds it impossible to adapt, rebelling in a country where rebellion increasingly has no place, especially for girls.

This film has one use of strong bad language and some scenes of violence
