A trailer has been released for the movie “Rosewater,” based on journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir “Then They Came for Me.” 

The movie is directed and was written by Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” and stars actor Gael Garcia Bernal of the movie “No” as Bahari. Bahari, who was born in Iran and was a reporter for Newsweek, went to the country to cover the 2009 election and was later imprisoned there for almost four months.

The film also stars actor Kim Bodnia of “The Bridge” as Rosewater, Bahari’s interrogator whom he named after the scent the interrogator liked to wear, as well as Shohreh Aghdashloo, Golshifteh Farahani, and Dimitri Leonidas. 

“Rosewater” is scheduled to be released on Nov. 7.
