Wondering why times are missing?

An enterprising Saudi schoolgirl dreams of buying her own bicycle—much to the outrage of neighbors, teachers and religious leaders who don't much like the idea of females with freedom of transportation. Writer-director Haifaa al-Mansour is reportedly the first female filmmaker in Saudi Arabia, and—against great odds—she's crafted a charming coming-of-age tale that disarmingly and entertainingly examines gender roles in today's Middle East. 98 minutes PG-13.
