Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's a movie whose good heart is outweighed by its heavy hand. – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times, Jun 23, 2016

Rotten: This autobiographically inspired tale of a wealthy Jewish family in Tehran suffering under Iran's shift to fundamentalist Islam, which played in print as hard-hitting but nuanced, now feels like a simplistic, somewhat pandering melodrama. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jun 20, 2016

Rotten: Long on cardboard characterizations and short on genuine tension. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jun 23, 2016

Rotten: Heavy with earnest good intentions but too underpowered and oddly packaged to deliver the emotional gut punch its subject demands, Septembers of Shiraz is a disappointing misfire. – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 20, 2016
