Those of us lucky enough to have the same freedoms and rights as men forget that we're so much better off than women in other countries. Wadjda is a young girl in Saudi Arabia, who wants to ride a bike - but because she's a girl she's denied that simple pleasure. This movie is inspirational not just because of the story, but because it was the first movie in Saudi Arabia to be directed by a woman.
