In Iran in the late 90's, Azar Nafisi and seven young women - her former students - gathered at her house every Thursday to discuss forbidden works of Western literature. Shy and uncomfortable at first, they soon began to open… up, not only about the novels they were reading but also their own dreams and disappointments. Their personal stories intertwine with those they are reading. Azar Nafisi also tells her own story. 2004.
