Closed Curtain

In the midst of a government-imposed 20-year ban on filmmaking, acclaimed Iranian new wave filmmaker/political rebel Jafar Panahi (The White Balloon) takes up the writing/directing mantle for this story of a screenwriter hiding out in a secluded house by the sea. His exile is broken one night by the arrival of a young woman fleeing from the authorities. Refusing to leave, she takes refuge in the filmmaker's house, upending his isolation. In Farsi with English subtitles. 106 minutes Unrated.
