Kick-Back Friday: #38

Kick-Back Friday: #38


Not Without My Daughter (1991): Based on the true account of an American woman’s unexpected, indefinite stay in Iran with her husband and his family during the Islamic revolution. Recommended because Alfred Molina (Frida, Boogie Nights, Enchanted April), as the husband, is so incredibly good at morphing from a sympathetic foreign medical grad in the US to a conflicted monster in his native country. I also really (really) like Sally Field.
