Actress Sally Field says she knows her new film, "Not Without My Daughter," could kindle strong feelings against Iran.

"Is it possible to come out of this movie without some anti-Iranian sentiment? I'd have to say, `no,"' she said.Miss Field stars in the film as Betty Mahmoody, an American who escapes from Iran where she is held against her will with her daughter, played by Sheila Rosenthal.

"If you watch the movie closely, however, you'll see that while the Iranians are the villains, the heroes in the movie are also Iranians," she said.
