Daily Candy Includes Circumstance in August’s Must-See Movies

Photo: Brian Rigney Hubbard / Courtesy of Roadside Attractions Circumstance Visual, lustful, and tasteful, Maryam Keshavarz’s debut feature gives new meaning to girls just wanna have fun. Sixteen-year-old Iranian lookers Shireen and Atafeh keep their mad love for one another secret as they dabble in rebellion and lip-synch to “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Haunted by arranged marriage and a Muslim voyeur, the two dream of moving to Dubai, where they’ll be able to reveal what’s behind the curtain, or, rather, head scarf. It’s like: Thirteen meets The Stoning of Soraya M. Leave: The morality police at home. Premieres: August 26 http://www.dailycandy.com/all-cities/flipbook/107955/August-2011-Movie-Releases-New-Releases#slide=7
