Persepolis is the exuberant and critically acclaimed story of an Iranian girl's self-awakening, as she experiences the emotional travails of adolescence against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. Based on the autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi, the film's beautiful black-and-white animation is a striking reminder of the power of the drawn image.
