In collaboration with Disability
What: "The Patience Stone" is a 2012 film directed by Atiq Rahimi, based on his novel of the same title. In a war-torn country, a woman (Golshifteh Farahani) alleviates her silent suffering by confessing her dreams, desires and secrets to her husband who is in a coma.
Reviews: not typical Bollywood, Tollywood, richly rewarding
“I can’t awaken sleeping souls,” Rahimi concedes. “But at least I disturb their slumber.”
