The brutality of The Stoning moved me to tears.
After watching the injustice and betrayal that Soraya, the lead character, suffered in this film I can no longer be silent about the injustice going on in this world today. The human rights violations happening in our world stabs at the heart of human dignity. The story starts off slowly and builds to a brutal and bloody ending that I did not expect. It sheds light on how one man's selfishness can incite a mob mentality against an innocent woman. The lack of compassion in the villagers is astounding, but the silence of justice is deafening. See this film as soon as you can! It is informative, life-changing and it makes you reevaluate what side of good and evil you really stand on. Choosing to not speak out is the same as condoning the crime.
