Rosewater is the story of Newsweek reporter Maziar Bahari and his thirteen year imprisonment in an Iranian prison. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart wrote and directed this film and many including myself are excited to see his transition from more satirical, humorous content to the more somber and dramatic stories seen in this film.
As a loyal fan of Jon Stewart I am excited to see him expand his creative horizons as he steps behind the camera for the first time in his career. So far, the film has a received mixed reviews with a 75% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
