22. Sarah Kazemy and Nikohl Boosheri as Atafeh and Shireen, Circumstance (2011)
Sarah Kazemy's and Nikohl Boosheri's characters in this Iranian film are not trying to start a revolution per se. However, their affair and their partying, while awesome in our eyes, are considered highly anti-establishment in conservative Iran and put them at risk of harsh physical punishment. Even the movie itself had to be shot secretly in Lebanon rather than in Iran for fear of political reprisal.
