A spokesperson said, “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.

“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.

“Look forward to the next installment of ‘BUEI Silver Screens’ which will screen ‘Sharper’ on Tuesday, June 18th at 2 pm. Starring acting greats, Julianne Moore, Sebastian Stan, and John Lithgow; ‘Sharper’ is a crime thriller of epic proportions that will constantly keep you guessing. In this intense noir film, nothing is as it seems when suspicions are high, and chaos is everywhere when a con artist tries to take on a belligerent New York billionaire. ‘Sharper’ is a refreshing crime thriller that will leave audiences hanging on the edge of their seats.

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