Winner of the prizes for both Best Screenplay and Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival, and Iran’s official entry for the upcoming Academy Awards, the latest drama from Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) stars Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidoosti as Emad and Rana, a young acting couple in Tehran performing in a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. After their old flat becomes damaged, they are forced to move into a new apartment. One night when Rana is home while Emad is rehearsing, an incident occurs that is linked to the previous tenant, one that transforms the couple’s lives, as the filmmaker expertly builds tension to a dramatic climax.
