Academy Award nominated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi's latest film is a simmering drama steeped in intellect and nuance that premiered at Cannes in 2016, taking home the awards for Best Actor and Best Screenplay. The film follows young couple Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), who are forced to find a new apartment in Tehran. While fate seems to finally smile on them, in the form of a recently vacant apartment owned by their acting buddy, an incident linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life.Set against the lead up to the production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, the film draws a "Hitchcockian" web around the anger, fear and moral anxiety that stem from the young couple after the seemingly isolated incident.
