  • Rahimi simply made an inspired decision when he chose Farahani...who quietly but powerfully works her way through subtle shadings of emotion from fear to despair to anger to love to righteous vindication. show more

  • A luminous central performance from Golshifteh Farahani distinguishes an ambitious if somewhat monotonously wordy adaptation of a prize-winning best-seller. show more

  • It is a tour de force for the actress, needless to say. Iranian Golshifteh Farahani is wonderful in the role. show more
