Forced to leave their apartment due to a dangerous construction project in a neighboring building, a young Iranian couple moves to the center of Tehran where they become embroiled in a life-altering situation involving the previous tenant. Directed by Asghar Farhadi, who also helmed the Oscar-winning feature A Separation. The Salesman is the Academy Award Winner for the Best Foreign Language Film. (Rated PG-13, runtime 125 minutes)

 

From the critics:

An exquisite, closely studied moral fable about our tendency to confuse love with ownership and our willingness in the face of felt humiliation to disavow empathy, understanding, and concern for our neighbor.

-Tirdad Derakhshani Philadelphia Inquirer

Tightly focused, rather than broad-gauge brilliant, and another instance of this superb filmmaker turning elusive motivations and the mysteries of personality into gripping drama.

-Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal
