"A fasinating story"--Roger Ebert; "A masterpiece"--Newsday; "Deeply moving"-- Philadelphia Inquirer:
Synopsis: "Transcending cultural and religious barriers to present a fascinating portrait of contemporary Iran, A Separation is a maze of narrative intrigue and complex emotion in which everyone is both innocent and guilty, depending on where youre standing. On the surface, its a compelling drama about the dissolution of a marriage: Simin wants to leave Iran with her husband Nader and daughter Termeh. Simin sues for divorce when Nader refuses to leave behind his Alzheimer-suffering father. As the family is drawn into an unprecedented feud, director Asghar Farhadi continues his devilishly clever turning of narrative tables, selectively revealing new details and forcing the viewer to continuously reassess each character" (Belcourt)
This film combines a plot worthy of a great novel with the emotional impact of a great melodrama "A Seperation" will become one of those enduring masterpieces watched decades from now. Roger Ebert
"A thrilling domestic drama...as well as a compelling look at what goes on behind a particular curtain that almost never gets raised."--LA Times
The exact showtime will be posted when the Belcourt updates its site.
