  • A Separation is a landmark film. No way will you be able to get it out of your head. show more

  • Moaadi is the standout here, subtly evoking filial worry and fatherly pride in one scene, popping off with rage in another: He's believably decent, believably flawed. A Separation touches on religious strictures and the role of women in Iran, but it does so with a light hand and not a twitch of condemnation. show more

  • Sophisticated and universal yet deeply intimate, A Separation is an exquisitely conceived family drama that has the coiled power of a top-notch thriller. show more

    An intimate look at modern day Iranian life that includes typical problems such as divorce, depression, and discrimination amid the oppressive Sharia legal system. It is a great story but a bit too long.

    Wonderful movie depicting moral dilemmas in everyday life. Iran family problems could mirror our own. It was a beautiful story. The children were delightful, so realistic.
