Jon Stewart's Rosewater

Last year came word that Jon Stewart would be taking the summer off from his duties as the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show to make a movie.

That movie is titled Rosewater, and it stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a journalist who is held prisoner and interrogated for being a spy. It’s based on the true story of Maziar Bahari, and is of great importance to Stewart personally as one of the reasons Bahari was accused of being a spy is because he was a guest on The Daily Show.

Now the first trailer for Rosewater has been released, and you can watch it and read a full synopsis below.

SYNOPSIS:

Rosewater is based on the best-selling memoir by Maziar Bahari. The film is the directorial debut of Jon Stewart, and stars Gael García Bernal. Rosewater follows the Tehran-born Bahari, a journalist with Canadian citizenship. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who was the challenger to president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi’s supporters protested Ahmadinejad’s victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself as “Rosewater,” who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days. With Bahari’s wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and media outlets keeping the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government.
