I'm getting to the end of the list of Golden Globe nominees -- just in time for Sunday's Golden Globe "News Conference." Tonight I saw the fifth film nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, "Persepolis," from France.
It's about a girl who grows up in Tehran and charts the changes in government from the Shah of Iran to the religious extremists in control now.
Interestingly, the movie is animated and based on an autobiographical graphic novel.
