Not Without My Daughter
11 March 2010 | by bevaritzSee all my reviews

My comment is primarily directed to the person who wrote this piece below: Obviously, you got nothing out of this movie. I realize you are entitled to your own opinion, but when you stereotyped this woman as being more concerned about her lifestyle as a "doctor's wife" and that she was blinded about "all those early signs." What "early signs?" There were no early signs of his "Jeckyl and Hyde" persona. At the end, you only saw a "golddigger." My question to you is: What movie were you watching? You have a deep anger for women who apparently you consider superior to you because of their rank in society.

"Or maybe the allure of a lifestyle as "doctor's wife", as she repeatedly mentioned and obviously cherished, blinded her to all those early signs? Second of all, she married an Iranian, regardless how Americanized he was." What did you miss?

Betty had no such motive in her heart; she loved and trusted her husband. End of story!
