About the Movie

Adapted from Waris Dirie's bestselling autobiography, Desert Flower recounts the incredible story of how an African nomad overcame considerable odds and unspeakable traumas to become an international modeling sensation. The inspiring story of an extraordinary, proud and brave woman, Dirie's story is a modern fairy tale which oscillates between dazzling glamour and archaic rituals. Full of vitality, humour, emotional depth and enormous compassion, Desert Flower simultaneously offers a gripping plea to stop the terrible and inhuman tradition of female genital mutilation. Top model and actress Liya Kebede excels in the main role alongside an ensemble of first-class character actors including Silver Bear and Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky), Timothy Spall (Harry Potter, Secrets and Lies), Craig Parkinson (Control) and Juliet Stevenson (Bend it Like Beckham).

Excellent movie, touching story. So sad in parts but also had some laughs. A very moving true story about a very strong woman. You will need a box of tissues. It was so good to see there are kind generous people in this world that will help others.
