CAST: Sandra Oh, Ellen Page, Shohreh Aghdashloo DIRECTOR: Ann Marie Fleming TUESDAY FILM SERIES
Rosie Ming (voiced by Sandra Oh - Grey's Anatomy, Sideways), a young Canadian poet, is invited to perform at a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, but she'd rather go to Paris. She lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents and has never been anywhere by herself. Once in Iran, she finds herself in the company of poets and Persians who tell her stories that force her to confront her past: the Iranian father she assumed abandoned her and the nature of poetry itself. The film is about building bridges between cultural and generational divides. It's about being curious. Staying open. And finding your own voice through the magic of poetry.
Like a poem, Window Horses evolves into a story of love. Love for art, love of family, and ultimately (hopefully) love of self.Trent Wilkie, Vue Weekly
An entertaining, educational, and poignant tale about identify and imagination that is filled with stories and poetry.Alissa Simon, Variety
The writing in "Window Horses" is unaffected and lovely, with each poem animated in a different style to reflect the variety of life on display.Teo Bugbee, New York Times
