“Wadjda” Illustrates Oppression of Women

Share this:

Our friend Jim Lane has profiled the film Wadjda over at People’s World. The inspiring and heartbreaking story of a young girl growing up in Saudi Arabia goes into limited release around the country this weekend, but Jim already has his thoughts on the film.

Everybody in the movie, and everything that happens, tells Wadjda to give up. Everything says that women’s oppression can’t be can’t be overcome whether in the extreme Saudi Arabian form or in the everyday discrimination we see at home.

Read the rest of Jim’s review at People’s World. Wadjda opens in Milwaukee on October 18 at the Downer Theatre.  Get your tickets here.
