A Separation (PG)
Friday 25 November 2011
Set in modern-day Iran, Asghar Farhadi's gripping human drama follows the story of Nader (Peyman Moaadi) who is accused of causing his maid, Razieh (Sareh Bayat), to suffer a miscarriage after he throws her out for locking up his elderly father (Ali-Asghar Shahbazi) and stealing money.
It is then up to Nader's estranged wife Simin (Leila Hatami) to discover the truth. Despite its title, this film is more than just about the end of a marriage, it is the classic tale of one person's word against another. The focus is on characters rather than politics, and it presents a different side to Iranian society that is not seen in news reports.
