About the Movie

The feature film Rosewater is based on the New York Times best-selling memoir “Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival,” written by the BBC journalist Maziar Bahari. A true story, the film marks the screenwriting and directorial debut of The Daily Show host and anchor Jon Stewart, and stars Gael García Bernal, leading an international cast. Rosewater is produced by Scott Rudin, Stewart, and Gigi Pritzker, with Lila Yacoub and Eli Bush serving as executive producers.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Stewart acquits himself solidly, though not thrillingly, as a beginning director ... – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Nov 13, 2014

Fresh: Rosewater ... has an urgency that's all about the storytelling smarts of its first-time writer-director. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Nov 14, 2014

Fresh: The hard-focus clarity of the images (Bobby Bukowski did the cinematography) leads to an intimacy with anguish that passes into expressionism. – David Denby, New Yorker, Nov 17, 2014

Rotten: The main question Rosewater grapples with is whether Stewart can hack it as a filmmaker. The answer: sort of? – Esther Breger, The New Republic, Nov 21, 2014

good if you can stick with it

i ended up enjoying this movie even though i almost gave up on it a couple of times. i’m glad i didn’t but it’s a bit of a slog. the picture it paints of life in iran is one that needs to be seen, however, and a reminder that we’re all just people, underneath it all. gael garcia bernal is incredible, as usual.

Because of Gael Garcia, is a good movie

It's was a long movie but it was worthy, Gael Garcia is a good actor, so far I love the movie

decent but forgettable

i enjoyed this movie mainly due to its historical relevence and the lead actor.
