    Writer/director Haifaa al-Mansour makes her feature directorial debut with this film about a headstrong 10-year-old girl named Wadjda who's determined to challenge a neighborhood boy to a bike race despite the potentially dire repercussions. When Wadjda's mother refuses to purchase her a bike, the young girl enters a Koran reading competition to earn the money she needs to buy it herself. But not everyone is willing to accept a young girl who refuses to play by society's rules, and the closer Wadjda gets to achieving her goal, the deeper her understanding of the division between the sexes grows.—All Movie. Admission is free and all are welcome. Sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library!
