Persepolis (2007)

Based on a graphic novel about and by the author, Persepolis gives us a unique look at the Iranian revolution and what it meant to grow up there.

Marjane is only a young girl when much of the political upheaval begins, but she experiences more as Iraq attacks the Iran and the Islamist fundamentalists take over. She is decidedly strong in her resistance and rebels against everything.

The story is very compelling as is the gorgeous animation. The sequences with God are particularly intriguing.
