The Stoning of Soraya M
After watching the movie, there is no doubt that this is a brutal and emotional drama.
Even wondering why not considers it as a tragic story. Killing an innocent woman without any genuine proof or virtuous evidence is completely unacceptable and shocking.

Indeed it is a shock for us as civilians to see and experience executions and all the various former practices of the late century savagery return in our era?
The name of the film and the picture depicting as the cover speaks of it itself and you can guarantee that inequality is merged during the course of this catastrophic story. The degradation of Islam, the restriction of the culture in the name of religious conviction, the dual ideals applied to men and women, the pressure of fundamentally decent people by the bullying and terror challenging traditional values, the exploitation of ruling and righteousness. These themes exist and occur as we watch the foreseeable
