A rousing war movie, Girls of the Sun shines its light on a battalion of female Kurdish soldiers as they attempt to liberate their town from ISIS in 2015. Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson) plays Bahar, a former hostage turned military leader. Investigating Bahar’s heroism is French photojournalist Mathilde (Emmanuelle Bercot), who is drawn inextricably to conflict. This is passionate, heart-on-sleeve cinema that combines the emotional sweep of classic war films with a hitherto little-known story – inspired by a real-life female combat unit.
