Jon Stewart Made A Dramatic Movie Called 'Rosewater,' And The Trailer Gives Me Chills

Jon Stewart, host of "The Daily Show" and one of my favorite people when it comes to speaking truth to power, took a summer off last year to shoot a movie. Not star in it, but actually write and direct it. It's not a comedy.It's based on the true story of Maziar Bahari, a Canadian journalist who was born in Iran and covered Iranian elections in 2009 for Newsweek during the Arab Spring. He ended up witnessing the election and shooting footage that got sent to the BBC. The police arrested him and tortured and interrogated him for 118 days. This is the trailer for that movie, "Rosewater." And my eyes teared up a little. So apparently I'm not all dead inside.
