An Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari gets caught up in civil unrest in Iran. As a result he is imprisoned and accused of being a spy. He is incarcerated for 118 days and is brutally interrogated. He survives the ordeal by having visions of his late father which seems to give him the strength to keep going.
In Rosewater Bahari is mostly blindfolded while under interrogation, and his interrogator's distinguishing feature is that he smells of rosewater. Well shot and intense it makes you appreciate the freedom we have in Australia to speak our mind. Anne
