(Newser) Rosewater, the movie Jon Stewart took a hiatus from the Daily Show to direct, is coming to select theaters on November 7. The political drama, Stewart's directorial debut, is based on a memoir about a BBC journalist arrested while covering an Iranian election protest, Entertainment Weekly reports. Gael Garcia Bernal plays the journalist, who was tortured while imprisoned for 118 days. Open Road Films acquired the movie at Cannes and will debut it at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
