What a great movie, but it is a theatrical production mind you. There is no denying that such barbaric actions take place and from the perspective of those of us living in western culture it is reprehensible. Consider how barbaric the U.S. must look to a country like Denmark who abolished the death penalty more than 50 years ago.

But I disagree with the undertone of a lot of the reviews here. This isn't a movie that defines violence against women or even that there is more injustice for woment than man. The movie is an eye opening, dramatic production based up an aspect of a culture we believe to be upside down. This is a movie that shows no matter the culture, there will be evil people that attempt to manipulate the system to satisfy their own lust, greed, fears and anger. In turn their victims will receive unjust punishment. Injustice is injustice and to the victim who screams for the truth to be believed the emotions and pain will be the same. Sadly when one person judges another mistakes are bound to be made, simply because we are human.

Ultimately this is a movie about how one sick s.o.b. in another country tried to use the system to get rid of his wife and that poor woman's fight. Inhumanity has and will always exist, so don't make the movie out to be some great revealing documentary, this is old news.

This was a horrible movie, the way they treat women over in Iran is nothing short of barbaric & we live in the 21st century.

The Stoning of Soraya M portrays the social injustice happening in our world. This film does a good job of being the voice for those who can't be heard.

I always knew that this was happening, but after watching the movie it changed my perspective. Sometimes we know there's injustice in the world, but we don't understand how big that can be, until we see it. I'm glad I watched it.

Terrifying story that MUST BE HEARD! Knowledge is power. The more people who know about this injustice, the greater te chances of changing the hearts of those who see no problem with honour killings and abuse.
