When you host a political satire TV series, sometimes the audience is on board and sometimes they’re not. Oh, and apparently sometimes your obviously satirical interviews land legitimate journalists in Iranian prisons.
Jon Stewart, of The Daily Show, makes his directorial debut with this biopic account of reporter Maziar Bahari, who spent several months incarcerated by the Iranian government for capturing evidence of corruption with his camera.
