The Queen and I (Drottningen och jag)

Directed by: Nahid Persson

Cast: Empress Farah, Nahid Persson

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Rating: Unrated

Release Date: August 28, 2009

Plot: Nahid Persson fled her native Iran after making a documentary that the government felt was anti-Islamic. Now she wants to make a film about another Iranian refugee, the former Empress Farah. The two women offer different views on living in exile from a beloved country.

Who’s It For? Anyone who’s interest was piqued by the recent unrest in the Iranian elections. The film offers some really interesting perspective on Iran.

Expectations: I was intrigued by the write up, ever since reading Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and seeing the film of the same name I’ve been interested in the events of the Iranian Revolution.

Scorecard (0-10)


Empress Farah as herself: Initially I wasn’t sure I was going to like Farah. »
