Poster Rating: C+

Review: Scenes from films rarely make good posters. This one provides the entire premise of the movie in one simple stroke. The scene is in the trailer, which makes the poster seem a tad bit unnecessary.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: A film about the oppression of women that reveals itself at the World Cup football match. Though the film shows no sign of an actual abuse of women, it should still provide some minimal insight into the plight of women in the muslim world.

Oscar Prospects:

This film would be a star player at the Oscars if it were a documentary. The trailer suggests it’s a relatively true-to-life phenomenon, but the fact that it’s fictionalized makes it a contender for the more wide open Foreign Language Film race, which is almost always peppered with more austere subjects.
