“Moody” is an Iranian doctor living in America with his American wife Betty and their child Mahtob. Wanting to see his homeland again, he convinces his wife to take a short holiday there with him and Mahtob. Betty is reluctant, as Iran is not a pleasant place, especially if you are American and female. Upon arrival in Iran, it appears that her worst fears are realized: Moody declares that they will be living there from now on. Betty is determined to escape from Iran, but taking her daughter with her presents a larger problem.

Film Review

This moving drama from director Brian Gilbert seems to be more about the recent revolution in Iran rather than the story of a mother desperate to escape her violent husband and get back to the U.S. with her daughter. Both Sally Field and Alfred Molina are in good form as the couple whose lives are turned upside down by the visit to Moody's home country."Not Without My Daughter" is at its most effective when portraying the frighteningly fanatical lifestyle of the Iranians. It succeeds in being disturbing, and dramatically holds its own, although it does little more. Also starred Roshan Seth.Sunday, August 11, 1991 – Knox District Centre

I can't understand why this movie was called racist! It happened and there is a prevalent problem with some child custody cases involving parents from different countries. I did read Betty Mahmoody's sequel book entitled "For the Love of a Child" . It basically deals with the aftermath of her escape from Iran with Mahtoob, but she also writes about other cases where children from such marriages (one parent from a foreign country) who use the international system to hold their children hostage against the other parent. I recommend this book more than "Not Without My Daughter" It shows the nightmare of losing your child to international courts in nasty child custody battles. I had no idea it was such heartache.

This film is not an accurate portrayal of anything other than racist propaganda. Everyone involved in it should be disgusted with themselves for perpetuating the ignorance of so many who view this film passively without any knowledge of Islam or Iran, accepting this racist construction of a film as Gospel. This film has absolutely nothing to do with Iran or Iranians. This has everything to do with a Hollywood fabrication of Iran and its people. Watch this only to gain an overview of the unjust representations of this film before watching the documentary 'Without My Daughter'.This is a hideous portrayal of Film. Films are there to educate and inform about other worlds, experiences and ideas. This film teaches ignorance, encourages racism and is painful to watch. Do not be as uneducated as the people who were involved in making the film, though, in choosing to ignore it. Now that it has been made, it is important to learn from it. Though that might not be possible while followin…
