Marjane Satrapi’s “Persepolis” is the autobiographical story of an intelligent but impressionable youth living in Iran during the revolution who grows up with an ever-changing and enlightened perspective thanks to open-minded Communist parents and a thoughtful, guiding force of a grandmother. Her black-and-white animated odyssey from young girl to full blown womanhood is enchanting from start to finish. A gorgeous film.
