Women Without Men, an adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's magic realist novel of the same name, is Iranian artist Shirin Neshat's first feature length film. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953; a cataclysmic moment in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d'état brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power.

this review is from: Women Without Men (ON DEMAND)

Women Without Men portrays the lives of four Iranian women during a time of political and social turmoil for their country. All at different stages in their lives, and struggling with separate emotional issues, the women are able to passionately display varying forms of opposition towards the lives they are meant to live. Whether it be marital issues, desire for a political voice, or a difficult self discovery, each of the women fight to understand what it is they truly want and can achieve during this time of their lives. At the same time, all of this is made even more difficult because of the state of their country.
