    Last night I watched:

    [YOUTUBE="3XyKyOhNsSA"]The stoning of soraya m[/YOUTUBE]

    BASED ON A TRUE STORY
    Stranded in a remote Iranian village, a French journalist is approached by Zahra, a woman who has a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before...

    As the journalist turns on his tape recorder, Zahra takes us back to the beginning of her story which involves Soraya's husband, the local phony mullah, and a town all too easily led down a path of deceit, coercion, and hysteria. The women, stripped of all rights and without recourse, nobly confront the overwhelming desires of corrupt men who use and abuse their authority to condemn Soraya, an innocent but inconvenient wife, to an unjust and torturous death.

    A shocking and true drama, it exposes the dark power of mob rule, uncivil law, and the utter lack of human rights for women. The last and only hope for some measure of justice lies in the hands of the journalist who must escape with the story -- and his life -- so the world will know.
    Be warned, the stoning is graphically brutal and distressing.

    It was a brilliant film, well acted, and based on a true story. Not only a true story but something that happens to women still in certain countries around the world.

    My Fi made me cry so many times in the movie, because I could easily imgine how I would feel in the circumstances this woman found herself in.

    Even her sons join in because they have been trained to not care about the fate of the women folk.

    A very good movie. 10/10.

    Precious. Uncomfortably real yet still manages to be uplifting and inspirational. Definitely a movie I will buy.

    we watched The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, which is more entertaining if you come from a sales background

    The X Files: I Want to Believe

    It was good.

    [Spoiler Alert]
    There are no aliens, but there are Russians that seem to take the place of them: speaking a foreign language amongst each-other while ignoring the cries and questions of the tranquilised victims they are removing organs from in a surgical setting.

    Not a scary movie, but I still made my boyfriend close the closet door. I think it was the music.

    I watched Happy-Go-Lucky yesterday. I hated it. The main character is insufferable and quite possibly has an unacknowledged (by the characters or filmmakers) mental illness.
