An outstanding animated film adapted from the graphic novel about a precocious and outspoken Iranian girl who grows up during the Islamic Revolution.
Based upon the graphic novels of Marjane Satrapi, ‘Persepolis’ is the biographical story following the poignant and often hilarious adventures of Marji. From a rebellious, heavy metal loving tomboy experiencing the turmoil of adolescence during the tyrannical, Iranian revolution to a teenage exile in Vienna, Austria, where she discovers the benefits of freedom can be just as shocking as the repressive regime she was forced to leave behind. Returning to Iran as an alienated adult, Marji must now decide where it is her heart and her home must lay in this complex, insightful, honest and touching story, making ‘Persepolis’ one of the most sublime animated feature films you’re likely to experience.
