“‘The Persian Version’ premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it received two awards, including the Audience Award for the U.S. Dramatic Competition. Its writer and director, Maryam Keshavarz, previously received the same award for her most acclaimed film: ‘Circumstance’ [2011].

“This film, which has been named one of the top 10 independent films of 2023 by the National Board of Review, stars Layla Mohammadi [Special Ops: Lioness], and Niousha Noor [Kaleidoscope], alongside others in a gripping romantic comedy/drama. Mohammadi plays a young Iranian American woman who finds herself at odds with her family, namely her mother [played by Noor], during an emergency family reunion in New York City. This movie is a beautiful and animated portrait of a woman who strives to balance and embrace opposing cultures while remaining unapologetically herself.

“The film is rated R with a runtime of 1 hour and 47 minutes.

“Tickets for ‘Films at BUEI’ are $15 for General Admission and $25 for our Big Screen Package, which includes: a drink of choice [a complimentary glass of wine from California’s own Beringer Main & Vine, an Italian Moretti Beer, or a non-alcoholic beverage] and a delightful snack pack to enjoy during the screening. Special thanks to Discovery Wines & Spirits!

“Moviegoers can also enjoy 10% off dinner at the Harbourfront Restaurant when you dine before or after the movie! Reservations are required. Please call 295-4207 to book.
