A Separation (Jodaeiye Nader az Simin)

Rated PG-13 123 min. 2011



Written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, this is the freshest, most deserving feature film that the Academy recognized this year. It comes from the great filmmaking nation of Iran and it's concerned with the bitter divisions that descend upon a middle-class family as it contemplates leaving the country. When the wife leaves the family, a desperately poor woman is hired to do housecleaning and look after an infirm older man. A series of misfortunes and misunderstandings follow. The film is remarkable in its portrait of a divided family and nation: men separated from women, the well-off from the poor, the secular from the pious. And it's also impressive in its refusal to take sides among the half-dozen competing points of view.
