Saw this in the theatre, and while I think it's an important film for people to see and a good first at bat for Stewart, I felt a lot of things in the film could have been done better. It wasn't as emotionally gripping as it could have been (e.g. the scene when he was released could have packed an emotional punch, but it kind of fell flat), but it did have some nice moments like the aforementioned reflections in the windows scene, or at the end overlooking the buildings in the city.

I'd give it a 3/5. As a Persian/Canadian myself, I'm really glad that Stewart made the film though.
