Tale of Repressed emotions and Repressed Society

By VAmovie_goer
Written September 18, 2011
Circumstance is a film about two young women who must face consequences when their mutual attraction leads to love. The story takes place in Iran where the threat of repression is very real to those who do not abide by strict Islamic culture. I thought the story was interesting and the characters compelling. I felt some of the scences were perhaps a little overdone especially those which established the two women's desire for one another. The character of the brother was rather creepy and perhaps a bit one-dimensional. All and all, an interesting tale of emotions and survival in a controlled society.

You gotta see this one. If you are on the fence or are not too sure with the lesbian storyline please put your preconceived notions to the side. There are several storylines going on here. A real eye opener for me as to life in Iran. Didn't care for the ending but I won't say more, don't want to spoil it for anyone. Just go see it!

All over the place

This movie had a lot of potential.... But it was all over the place. There were too many messages, distractions and bits and pieces that didn't contribute to its theme. It was a waste of money. Don't even go see this movie on a boring, rainy day. I should've just walked into the lobby, got some popcorn and went back home.... How did this movie get good reviews?
