Rosewater is based on a true story about Maziar Bahari, a Canadian broadcast journalist who endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC and was subsequently arrested by police and brutally interrogated in prison for 118 days. An interview and sketch that Maziar did with a journalist on The Daily Show was used as evidence that Maziar was a spy and in communication with the American government and the CIA. The only distinguishable feature about his captor is the distinct smell of rosewater. (USA, 103 min., 2014, rated R) Directed by Jon Stewart.
