From Oscar-nominated French-Algerian filmmaker Rachid Bouchareb (Days of Glory, Outside the Law, London River) comes the sensual, revealing drama film Just Like a Woman, which he directed and co-wrote. It stars Golden Globe nominee Sienna Miller and Golshifteh Farahani. Just Like a Woman is the first in a trilogy that Bouchareb intends to be about the relation between North America and the Arab world.
Two beautiful, emotionally abused women, Marilyn and Mona, from opposite parts of the world escape the prisons of their unhappy marriages and unite to take back control of their own "out of control" lives. Marilyn is a financially-strapped secretary from Chicago who loses her job and decides to ditch her deadbeat, cheating husband. Starting fresh, she sets off to New Mexico to compete in a prestigious belly dancing competition and pursue her dream of becoming a belly dancer. Meanwhile, Mona, a North African immigrant stuck in an arranged marriage, is a fugitive from the law after killing her terrible mother-in-law and needs to get out of town fast. The two women find themselves on a life-changing journey as they head Southwest, riding across the open country in a top-down convertible. Paying their way by belly dancing in dumpy clubs and restaurants, they grace the sleazy establishments with the sensuality and beauty of this ancient art. More than just tips, the two women taste freedom, the power of true friendship and the priceless value of self-worth.
Special features include a picture gallery and trailer.
