A Separation

A fascinating, complex and intimate window into Iran. Culturally enriching and deeply moving without the Hollywood cliches. A beautifully told tale interwoven with rich themes of gender roles, religion vs pride and mercy, and piety. I was so afraid that they would cop out the ending, but it was brilliant!!! Extremely engaging and thought provoking. Easily a Best Picture contender rather than a Best Foreign Film winner.
