Picture from Persepolis


Growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution of the 1970s, Marjane Satrapi (voice of Chiara Mastroianni) becomes increasingly rebellious over the new limits on her freedom. Hoping for a better life, the teen is sent to an Austrian boarding school by her parents (voices of Catherine Deneuve and Simon Abkarian)--but the culture shock proves equally difficult for the young immigrant. This animated movie is based on the semi-autobiographical graphic novels of Marjane Satrapi.
