Celebrated Iranian auteur Asghar Farhadi returns to similar territory that he explored in the acclaimed A Separation (2011) and The Past (2013), examining the strained relationship between a middle class married couple, Rana and Emad. 

Emad is a teacher and Rana his stay-at-home wife. In their spare time, they’re also part of a theatre group working on a stage production of Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman in which they play the central roles. Exploring challenging questions of morality and retribution, The Salesman is beautifully observed, painstakingly crafted and won Best Actor and Best Screenplay at Cannes this past year.

Winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar.
