    The sports drama gives The Iran Job a strong hook, while the cultural context enriches the movie's real story, which is less about Sheppard's life in Iran than about the people he meets.

    One of those documentaries that is sad and hopeful in equal measure and exceptional in its storytelling.

    This observant documentary avoids pedagogy; it's not always artful, but it has a relaxed, light touch that never topples into pretension.

    The description sounds like a real-life fish-out-of-water tale crossed with a sports movie. But the film wants to be more than that, and I'm on the fence about how well it succeeds.
