Dirs. Marjane Satrapi, Vincent Parronaud. 2007, 95 mins. Digital projection. English version with Amethyste Frezignac, Gena Rowlands, Sean Penn, Iggy Pop. Marjane Satrapi co-directed this lovely and deeply moving hand-drawn animated feature based on her autobiographical graphic novel about growing up in Iran before the revolution and her exile to France. 
 
"The story of Marjane’s coming of age has the emotional directness (a cynic might call it sentimentality) of a classic of adolescent literature, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn or The Catcher in the Rye."—Dana Stevens, Slate
