Pay Back

Iran's fearless feminist director Tahmineh Milani pushes the envelope with a double-edged comedy-drama about a recently paroled woman who talks three other ex-cons into a get-rich-quick scheme. The scheme involves fleecing gullible men who are on the make, even though they are married. Despite the storyline's darker implications, Milani manages to infuse the film with some comic high jinks, particularly when the four young women turn the tables on their would-be male predators.
