THE PATIENCE STONE captures, with great courage, the reality of everyday life for an intelligent woman under the oppressive weight of the Taliban regime.

Directed by Atiq Rahimi, based on his novel of the same name, winter of the 2008 Prix Goncourt, France’s most prestigious literary prize. The film is co-scripted by legendary screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, whose many collaborations with Luis Buñuel include BELLE DE JOUR and THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE.

 THE PATIENCE STONE takes place in an unnamed Middle Eastern country. Beautiful actress Golshifteh Farahani (persona non grata in her native Iran for starring in Ridley Scott’s BODY OF LIES and posing nude in a French magazine) gives an electrifying performance in a reversal of the Scheherazade role: Instead of spinning fabulous tales to amuse her man, she sits by her injured, unresponsive husband and confesses to a litany of abuses she has suffered at his hands, among others. Critics have called her performance “mesmerizing,” “spellbinding,” “luminous,” and “a tour de force.”
