With a narrative rooted in Iranian society, A Separation transcends its setting to create a stunning morality play with universal resonance. When his wife leaves him, Nader hires a young woman to take care of his suffering father. But he doesn't know his new maid is not only pregnant, but also working without her unstable husband's permission. Soon, Nader finds himself entangled in a web of lies, manipulation and public confrontations.
The winner of the 2012 Best Foreign Language Oscar and the Golden Bear at the 2011 Berlin International Film Festival, A Separation is a gripping and intelligent drama detailing the fractures and tensions at the heart of Iranian society. Written and directed by Asghar Farhadi and featuring superb performances from the ensemble cast who collectively received the Silver Bears for both Best Actor and Best Actress at the Berlinale.
