Critic Reviews of "Septembers of Shiraz"RogerEbert.comJune 24, 2016
Another vacuous melodrama/thriller that doesn't lay a glove on the era's historical complexities.Los Angeles TimesJune 23, 2016
Long on cardboard characterizations and short on genuine tension.New York TimesJune 23, 2016
It's a movie whose good heart is outweighed by its heavy hand.Hollywood ReporterJune 20, 2016
Heavy with earnest good intentions but too underpowered and oddly packaged to deliver the emotional gut punch its subject demands, Septembers of Shiraz is a disappointing misfire.VarietyJune 20, 2016
This autobiographically inspired tale of a wealthy Jewish family in Tehran suffering under Iran's shift to fundamentalist Islam, which played in print as hard-hitting but nuanced, now feels like a simplistic, somewhat pandering melodrama.Punch Drunk CriticsJanuary 09, 2017
There might be some way to depict the Iranian Revolution on film, but Septembers of Shiraz is not it.Urban CinefileJuly 09, 2016
Made with passion and compassion, Septembers of Shiraz is a marvelously crafted film that leaves a lasting impressionThe Age (Australia)July 07, 2016
A wildly inauthentic American melodrama about the 1979 Iranian revolution.FILMINK (Australia)July 05, 2016
...fast moving and passably exciting...Tolucan TimesJune 23, 2016
...captures what it must be like to have your life suddenly turned around into total chaos, the hopelessness, the helplessness, and the despair that descends when thrown into a dungeon where people all around you are being executed on a daily basis.GuardianSeptember 18, 2015
This lifeless, by-the-numbers production is an excruciating exercise in cliche and tedium. Its sole joy is in trying to figure out which of its leads is overacting most.
