It’s impossible to separate 'Rosewater' from the personality that is Jon Stewart. On the surface, this statement makes little sense, because many films are deeply culturally intertwined with its director. But 'Rosewater' is a little different, because it’s a person not known for directing -- or even really acting, for that matter. Jon Stewart is famous, but famous for something almost completely unrelated. It would be as if Derek Jeter or Joe Biden directed a movie. The public curiosity with 'Rosewater' is all because of who directed 'Rosewater,' not what 'Rosewater' is about.

After years of making us laugh and sigh as the host of 'The Daily Show,' the beloved comedian has stepped behind the camera with a film that doesn't look like it has a single laugh in its entire running time, but it looks harrowing and fascinating all the same.

And do you know what's even better than that? Raising money for UNICEF. Hmm, if only there was a way to combine all of these things into one video... Oh, wait! Here it is!

But he's not going on a vacation: he's going to direct a movie. 'Rosewater' will not only be Stewart's first time behind the camera, it will be something completely out of his regular wheelhouse.
