A Separation (2011) - dir. Asghar Farhadi // Iran

Winner of the 2012 Best Foreign Language Oscar, A Separation chronicles the struggles of a young couple in divorce court. The wife, Simin desires the divorce because her husband, Naader will not give her permission to leave Iran, nor to take their eleven-year-old daughter with her to have a better future. His refusal to leave is bound up by his responsibilities to his Alzheimer’s-stricken father, who has moved into the family’s apartment. The film explores the limits of a person’s principles and morality all while under the Iranian bureaucracy.
