Movie Preview: Of ISIS and Fatima, “The Lady of Heaven”

An historical epic about a daughter of Muhammed, “the Prophet,” sort of the Virgin Mary of Islam, according to Wikipedia, at least.

Modern day Middle Eastern turmoil sets up this “Did I ever tell you the story” tale of a seventh century woman of influence in a religion whose extremist segments put the poisonous “P” in “patriarchy.”

Could be informative, if supernaturalish. Could be propaganda.

This one opens in select cinemas Dec. 10.
