Osama

No, it's not a biography of Osama bin Laden. This 2003 drama is a history-maker in its own way, though. It's the first movie made in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban. The title character is actually a 12-year-old girl (Marina Golbahari) who poses as a boy so she can work and support her mother and grandmother. Eventually, she is found out and must pay a horrible price. The film airs here with English subtitles. HDTV8895060
