"Wadjda": (Saudi) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!
This Saudi film about a girl who wants to buy a bicycle and ride it (a prelude to driving a car?) looks just great. It was a big hit at the Venice Film Festival last fall, and opens in Paris today. I expect it will be shown again at a festival of Gulf films in May. Personally, I plan to see it this weekend. Would love to hear from others who have seen it already.
