THE PERFECT CANDIDATE is an Arabic language drama in which a young female Saudi doctor decides to stand as a candidate in her city's municipal elections.

Injury detail

A man is brought to a hospital in the aftermath of a traffic accident and has cuts and abrasions on his face.

There is very mild bad language ('damn', 'for God's sake'). The film highlights role of women in Saudi Arabia and the extent to which they are allowed to participate in the functioning of their society, according to culture and tradition. The central character faces discrimination in her work as a doctor when an elderly patient refuses to be examined by a woman. She also encounters patronising attitudes from men in regard to her political aspirations, and hostility from other women who accuse her of being 'impudent' and 'shameless' for having such ambitions.
