Sundance Film Festival winner ‘The Persian Version’ will be hitting theaters soon as Sony Pictures Classics acquired distribution rights to the film!
‘The Persian Version’ is a 2023 American comedy-drama about a young and queer Iranian-American filmmaker who gets into conflict with her mother while also learning about her family secret.
The Sundance Film Festival synopsis for the film says: “Coming from two countries at odds with each other, Iranian-American Leila (Layla Mohammadi) strives to find balance and embrace her opposing cultures, while boldly challenging the labels society is so quick to project upon her. When her family reunites in New York City for her father’s heart transplant, Leila navigates her relationships from arm’s length in an effort to keep her “real” life separate from her family life. However, when her secret is unceremoniously revealed, so are the distinct parallels between her life and that of her mother, Shireen.”
