The Girl’s House deals with issues facing Iranian women while telling the story of two female university students who try to solve the mystery surrounding the murder of one of their classmates.

Conservative media have slammed the film for being against “traditional and family values” and despite a number of revisions, it has not received a permit for public screening in Iran.

In this elegant, witty courtroom drama, the outcome of the trial gradually slips into the background as Christian Vincent instead focuses on the courtship between the presiding judge (Fabrice Luchini, from Gemma Bovery and Cycling with Moliere) and one of the reserve jurists (Sidse Babett Knudsen from The Duke of Burgundy and TV’s Borgen). Witty, subtle and ultimately poignant, this is like an especially polished episode of The Good Wife, augmented with a certain savoir faire.

Movies for Mommies screenings are modified for the enjoyment of moms and their infants. Screenings take place in low light with lower volume levels.
