I really don't like reading subtitles, but this movie was worth it. If you would like to see what happens when a small group of orthodox Muslims take control of a country and rule it, this is the movie for you.
The movie is not about bin Laden. Osama (the movie) is a composite of several true stories from Afghanistan, and the young starring actress herself was chased by the Taliban more than once. I didn't find that out until after the movie, but the authenticity spoke for itself.
The movie takes place in Afghanistan and was made shortly after the Taliban was defeated. The director and the actors are local Afghans and the film was shot on location.
