    Thanks largely to Tabatabai's superb performance, it's on this level that Maccarone's film is most affecting.
  2. With its deliberately overexposed film stock and driving electronic score, Ms. Maccarone's film occasionally suffers from a self-conscious artiness, but at its center is an extraordinary performance by Ms. Tabatabai as Fariba, a young woman whose expectations have been lowered by a lifetime of systematic mistreatment but who still holds out hope for the possibility of both justice and love.
  3. The parts are more valuable than the whole in Angelina Maccarone's Unveiled.

    Tabatabai delivers a strong performance and the script, although not always plausible, touches on important issues like bias against gays and Muslims.

    Several large leaps of faith take some of the dramatic steam out of Unveiled, an otherwise well-acted and accessible lesbian drama that also flirts with issues like loss of identity and anti-Muslim tensions.

    An Iranian version of "Boys Don't Cry," Unveiled overflows with sociopolitical outrage even if its portrayal of a gender-confused heroine is ultimately indecisive and laconic.
