About the Movie

In a country torn apart by war, a young woman watches over her older husband. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her suffering, her dreams, and secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before. Her husband has unconsciously become syngué sabour (The Patience Stone) - a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The woman's confessions are extraordinary and without restraint. But after weeks of looking after her husband, she begins to act, discovering herself in the relationship she starts with a young soldier. The Patience Stone is adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's a little on-the-nose. But "The Patience Stone" has Farahani, in nearly every shot, and in its meticulously paced way her movie-long confessional is something to see. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Sep 5, 2013

Fresh: From beginning to end, it's a very human story. – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 29, 2013

Fresh: A startling fantasy of Muslim feminist empowerment that allows the Iranian-born actress Golshifteh Farahani to put on what amounts to a one-woman show. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Sep 19, 2013

Fresh: Speaking truth to power - all manner of truths, to any kind of power - is at the core of "The Patience Stone." – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Aug 15, 2013
