Based on the novel by Atiq Rahimi, winner of France’’ most prestigious literary prize, and co–scripted by legendary screenwriter Jean–Claude Carrière (BELLE DE JOUR), THE PATIENCE STONE is a mesmerizing tale set in an unnamed, war–torn Middle Eastern country. After a wounded man has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and brothers, his younger wife stays by his side, confiding in him all the things she remained silent about in their 10 years of marriage. Golshifteh Farahani gives a spellbinding performance as the soft spoken woman who struggles to keep her husband alive while seeking to free herself from suffering.
