Reviews & Comments

“Afghan Star,’’ the TV show, is exactly what “American Idol’’ would look like if the contestants were playing for the biggest stakes imaginable: political and social freedom, gender equality, a chance to heal a country 30 years under the yokes of war and religious dictatorship. “Afghan Star,’’ the documentary about that TV show, is one of the most hopeful and heart-rending movies I’ve seen this year.
