I had the privilege to read Persepolis while at UCLA for a post-colonial, post modernism class and enjoyed the graphic novel very much-- so much so that I bought Marjane Satrapi's second part of the story.

While perusing the New York Times I found out that they have made an animated film from her story and couldn't be happier for her. Not only is it a good story but it'll give perspective towards the life of an Iranian-- one that doesn't involve enriching plutonium and denouncing the Holocaust.

You can read her blog at in which she discusses the process of making the movie among other things.
If you haven't read the book, you can look at some strips of the novel here.
