"Miller and Farahani...both sometimes used previously as decorationgive strong performances as women bonding over their delight in both movement and their own beauty" -New York Post
Just Like A Woman stars Sienna Miller (Factory Girl) and Golshifteh Farahani as two women who meet as they journey from Chicago to New Mexico, both escaping broken marriages. Iranian actress Farahani plays an Arab immigrant fleeing her marriage in Chicago, while Miller plays a woman who leaves her cheating husband to pursue a secret passion for belly dancing. From an outsider's perspective, they have little in common, one a receptionist at a computer repair company, the other a mini-mart-owning Algerian immigrant. But both Chicago women yearn to break free of their troubled home lives, and when fate intervenes, their paths intersect in this free-spirited road movie in the vein of Thelma & Louise.
Making his English-language debut, French-Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb (Days of Glory, Outside the Law) presents a slice of Americana, detailing the ways in which the United States interacts with the Arab world.
Directed by Rachid Bouchareb, 2012, UK/U.S.A./France, 90 mins.
