Wondering why times are missing?

Persepolis

This animated adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's autobiogrphical graphic novel relates the author/artist/filmmaker's life growing up in Iran during the reign of the Shah, and later, the Islamists. Satrapi went from precocious child to outspoken, punk-rock-loving teenager. The highly stylized black-and-white artwork seems almost impressionistic at times, lending a simple edge to this unsentimental coming-of-age tale. Impressive English language voicecast includes Sean Penn, Gena Rowlands and Iggy Pop. 95 minutes PG-13.
