The Iran Job will play the Noor Iranian Film Festival on August 5th before opening at the Laemmle Music Hall and Laemmle Town Center Encino on September 28th.   The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and you can check out the review here.

As previously reported the film stars Kevin Sheppard, a pro American basketball player, who accepts a contract to play in Iran. Further... What begins as a typical job-for-hire, ends in an emotional roller coaster as Kevin forms an unlikely alliance with three Iranian women against the backdrop of revolutionary upheaval in Tehran. Thanks to these women, his apartment turns into an oasis of free speech, where they discuss everything from politics to religion to gender roles. Kevin’s season in Iran culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran’s reformist Green Movement – a powerful prelude to the currently unfolding Arab Spring.
