Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Oscar Winner for Best Foreign Film of the year last year—and a Best Screenplay nominee to boot—A SEPARATION has drawn, by actual count, THE best of reviews of any film released in 2011. A truly involving drama about an Iranian couple whose marriage dissolves over family loyalties, A SEPARATION is “…an urgently shot courtroom drama designed to put you in the jury box…. As the great Sam Fuller said,’ “The end of this story will be written by you!’ “—J. Hoberman, Village Voice,  “A world-class masterpiece…. Flawlessly crafted, brilliantly performed and elegantly photographed, it follows a succession of disastrous consequences that flow from the marital split, and that pose profound moral questions without venturing judgments”—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal. In Farsi with English subtitles. PG-13. 123 Min.
