2010. Iran. Dir: Asghar Farhadi. With Leila Hatami. 123 min.
Iran’s worthy Oscar winner sidesteps sensationalized political narratives (::cough:: Argo ::cough::) in favor of quietly devastating conflict on a personal scale. A fracturing couple spars with another family when accident begets tragedy, but every version of the truth remains up for debate. Speaker: Dylan Leiner ‘93, Executive V.P. at Sony Pictures Classics. This is the first event of the Middle Eastern Film Series, presented with the help of Sony Pictures Classics.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
