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.
