There is a bit of dark humor that you can tell was part of what made this a part of Jon Stewart. This is a bit of a slow burner so don't expect a lot of action or anything like that.

Description: When Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran’s presidential election, he assured his pregnant fiancée, Paola, that he’d be back in just a few days, a week at most. Little did he know, as he kissed her good-bye, that he would spend the next three months in Iran’s most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogation sessions at the hands of a man he knew only by his smell: Rosewater. For the Bahari family, wars, coups, and revolutions are not distant concepts but intimate realities they have suffered for generations: Maziar’s father was imprisoned by the shah in the 1950s, and his sister by Ayatollah Khome ...

" Bernal does a great job in the lead, directed by TV host John Stewart. It's done well enough, and it's an important story; but it never gets out of the made-for-tv feel."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2015 (27 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 43min. First Viewing Rosewater is obviously well-intentioned, and that takes the movie surprisingly far, but there's not a whole lot new or inventive here. It's solidly made with a great deal of empathy, but it's just missing an urgency that would've made it vital viewing."
