Director Asghar Farhadi
Starring Golshifteh Farahani, Shahab Hosseini, Taraneh Alidoosti
In this gripping psychological drama Farhadi again challenges the sexual politics of current day Iran. A group of friends organise a family seaside holiday but one of the group secretly invites along one of the children’s teachers, Elly (of whom they know little), with a view to setting her up with one member of the group. But a crisis ensues followed by a bizarre disappearance that exposes the tensions within the group.
“A really absorbing picture; powerfully acted, disturbing and suspenseful” – Film Journal International

Compelling and interesting characters.
Very interesting film, enjoyed it.
First half very enjoyable, second half far too slow.
Bit slow, but interesting cultural differences.
Rather inevitable! A real pickle.
