A Separation (Jodaeiye Nader az Simin)
(No longer in theaters)
Sony Pictures Classics
Dec 30, 2011
The Iranian director’s devastating film about a recently separated couple and their tragicomic travails in the country’s judicial system after an incident involving household help is so exactingly observed and acted, so tensely constructed, that it might actually qualify as the most suspenseful and frightening film of the year.
