About the Film

Bhutto is the story of the first woman in history to lead a Muslim nation—Pakistan. Benazir Bhutto was educated at Harvard and Oxford Universities, and with an eye on a foreign-service career, Benazir's life changed forever when her father, Pakistan's first democratically elected president, chose Benazir to carry his political mantle over the family's eldest son. Her two terms in power saw acts of courage and controversy as she eradicated polio and stood up for women, fought the male-dominated political elite and a nervous military leadership, and battled accusations of corruption and scandal. With her assassination she transcended politics, but left a legacy of both simmering controversy and undeniable courage. More details at
