House of Sand and Fog
I had looked forward to seeing this...the reviews were good and I thought it would be interesting. I'm sorry to say it was absolutely the worst movie I've seen in years! My Iranian husband liked it, though. I really can't understand why. Although there was some truths about how many Iranians live here in this country, I thought it was demeaning. I also couldn't stand the American characters in the film. The story was incredibly depressing...maybe it would have played better as an opera. At least then there would have been some passion in the performances.
The only highlight was that the guys who sang at my husband's brother's wedding sang at the wedding scene in the movie.
