The film was directed by Michael Winterbottom, produced by BradPitt and starred AngelinaJolie as Marianne Pearl, with Dan Futterman playing Daniel. It screened out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and although not a financial success, was well-received critically.

* {{Brownface}}: When caucasian AngelinaJolie was cast as the mixed-race Marianne Pearl, many accused the filmmakers of race lifting, and some felt it akin to a {{blackface}} performance. This is despite Marianne Pearl having personally chosen Angelina Jolie for the role, going on record to state that she approved of her.
---> "I have heard some criticism about her casting, but it is not about the color of your skin. It is about who you are. I asked her to play the role—even though she is way more beautiful than I am—because I felt a real kinship to her. She put her whole heart into it, and I think she understood why we should do this movie. We had something to say that we knew we should say together."
---> '''- Marianne Pearl''' [[CaptainObvious (the real one)]]
** Or as Ms. Jolie put it herself:
---> "If you did actually want to find somebody that was her exact makeup, she's actually majority Dutch, and she's as black as she is Chinese, and she's Cuban, and she's French."

* BittersweetEnding



* HowlOfSorrow: One of the most heartbraking committed to film. AngelinaJolie is ''very'' good at delivering these when needed.

* WretchedHive: [[YourMileageMayVary YMMV]] of course, but despite attempts from the film to [[AvertedTrope avert]] this, Karachi can still come off as such a city.
