Summary/Review: Sixteen-year-old Nisha lives a double life. When out with her friends, she’s a regular Norwegian teenager. At home with her family, she is the perfect Pakistani daughter. But when her father catches her alone with her boyfriend, her two worlds brutally collide. To set an example and escape the judgment of their peers, Nisha’s parents send her to live with family in a small town in Pakistan. There, in an unfamiliar country surrounded by people she barely knows, Nisha must adapt to a rigid culture that denies her the freedoms she once enjoyed. WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY is a tense and moving drama about women’s rights, immigrant identity, and familial duties. Winner of the Audience Award at the **AFI Film Festival.** Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival.** *"Brims with authenticity and immediacy and benefits from a deeply sympathetic turn from sublime discovery Maria Mozhdah...as a character caught between cultures." - Alissa Simon, **Variety***
