wadjdaWell… that’s depressing. While this movie is outwardly about a girl and a bike, it’s clearly a statement on the status of women in Saudi Arabia. Everything about the movie felt authentic, and they weren’t trying to force a message. They don’t need to. They only need to show the basic reality of life for women like this to make their point. A really fine effort not only with the basics of film making, but in mattering as well.
