insightful, enlightening, poignant, truthful, and courageous! For all the women without a voice...
Before I saw the movie, I prepared myself for the violence. I knew that it would have a sad ending. This movie is touching. It moves you and it gently brings you to a reality that is rarely seen in our faded eyes. This is one of the movies that are based on true reality, the reality that women still face today which is beyond my imagination.
At the same time, I am a woman living in the United States and sometimes I even feel like my voice is not being heard. I value and admire the strength of the quiet, strong, hardworking woman who never complains about her life. She lives with dignity.
One of the things I loved about this film is that is shows
both the physical abuse and also the verbal abuse that
one of the main characters underwent. Many times we think that abuse is just physical, but it can actually be verbal and emotional as well. The Stoning is a great drama
that shows the harsh reality and how we need to stand up for what is right. Check this one out!
This is a breathtaking film. It is both brutal and honest to an extent that I can hardly express. Throughout the films heart wrenching title scene I just wanted to jump into the screen and save her. This film definitely has the power to inspire people to stand up against this kind of injustice throughout the world.
