Our take

Freely inspired by Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) delivers another tour de force in this suspenseful, provocative marriage drama. Winner of two prizes at the Cannes Film Festival and the director’s second (!) Academy Award® for Best International Feature Film.
