  1. Out of prison, Milani is still not allowed to leave Iran. Whether she will ever get the chance to make another film there is doubtful, all the more reason not to miss this one.
  2. Courageous but uneven The Hidden Half landed the director in jail.

    The confused script makes this a tough film for audiences to dig into.
  4. 40
    Ultimately, The Hidden Half is shopworn feminist soap opera, enacted in a political echo chamber.
