A Separation

In this Oscar-winning Iraqi film, an 11-year-old girl watches her upper-middle-class parents break apart. Mom wants to leave Tehran and go abroad so that her daughter will have better educational opportunities. Dad wants to stay and care for his elderly father, who has Alzheimer's. It's a painfully real domestic situation--one that's amazingly universal. As the story builds, the ethical dilemmas grow even more complex, making life for our family unit even more heartbreaking. Tense, challenging and brutally honest, this tragic domestic drama certainly deserved the Academy Award. In Farsi with English subtitles. 123 minutes PG-13.
