A fact-based thriller about a Michigan housewife, Betty Mahmoody (Sally Field), who has come to the Middle East with her young daughter (Sheila Rosenthal) and Iranian-born doctor husband (Alfred Molina). It's just a vacation, her husband promises. But soon the horrible truth surfaces. Betty's husband is a fanatically religious Islamic and doesn't intend to bring his family back to America...ever. Locked in the house, Betty pretends to embrace her husband's faith and persuades his family to allow her enough freedom to go to the market. There she meets an Iranian who is not totally possessed by his faith and who agrees to help her escape with her daughter. Based on a book by Betty Mahmoody and William Hoffer.

  • Not a bad movie

    By alissa914
    One of the times I fear going to some of these countries is that I won't be able to get out. But I have to admit, the only reason I looked for this movie was the South Park episode of Terrance and Philip: Not Without My Anus where they do a "spoof" of this movie. Then I read up about it and watched it. Not a bad film at all.
