"A dazzling, darkly funny, quietly devastating human drama from Iran.
You are in the hands of a major film artist."

-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The gripping new film from Oscar-winning, acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi ("A Seperation," "The Past") is another understated masterpiece.

After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. A sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple's life, creating a simmering tension between husband and wife.
