Iran’s official entry to the Oscars for Foreign-Language Film this week took honors as best foreign independent film at the Moet British Independent Film Awards. Set in contemporary Iran, A Separation deals with the dissolution of a marriage. Simin wants to leave Iran with her husband Nader and daughter Termeh, but Nader refuses to leave his father, who has Alzheimer’s. According to the New York Times, it starts as a family drama, turns into something else altogether and somewhat mysteriously has emerged as a real contender in the category. Written and directed by Asghar Farhadi and distributed in the U.S. by Sony Pictures Classics, it opens December 30 in limited release.
