Everybody Knows the Dice Are Loaded

What's worse than being married to a complete jerk? Being married to a complete jerk IN IRAN. Our heroine is the captain of the Iranian national indoor soccer team, off for the championship game in Malaysia. But at the airport, she learns that her husband has banned her from leaving the country, as is his legal right in Iran.

Things go downhill from there. She seeks redress, but since the system is rigged against her, it is not an easy fight. The film is nicely acted with well written, three dimensional characters. For instance, our lead is not all sweetness and light -- she is aggressive, insubordinate and confrontational, and has alienated the team's female boss / team mother / chaperone / morals gestapo even before the problem with her husband arose.
