In The Stoning of Soraya M., now playing in select theaters, Shohreh Aghdashloo stars as an Iranian woman who tells a journalist (James Caviezel) about the unjust and brutal death of her innocent niece (Mozhan Marno). The movie is based on Freidoune Sahebjam's 1994 novel of the same name. Both tell the true story of an Iranian village's persecution of an innocent woman.
Aghdashloo's performance in 2003's House of Sand and Fog earned her an Academy Award nomination. She joins Leonard Maltin on the next Secret's Out to talk about her new movie, which is also featured on the show. Tune in for the premiere on Friday, July 10, at 10:30 PM ET / 7:30 PM PT. Or catch one of its encore showings. Posted 06.30.09 by reelz
