Based on Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel about her life in pre- and post-revolutionary Iran and then in Europe, “Persepolis” traces Satrapi’s growth from child to rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran. In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the background of the disastrous Iran/Iraq war.

The film is rated PG-13. Run time is 1 hour and 36 minutes.
