If You Could be Mine tells the story of two Iranian girls on the cusp of adulthood. Since they were children, they have known that they love one another. Although being lesbian is illegal in modern Tehran, being born in the wrong body is not; one of the girls considers [legal] sexual reassignment surgery in hopes of preventing her beloved’s arranged marriage. Touching, moving, beautiful. I especially appreciated this realistic and unromanticized view into city life in today’s Iran.
