A Separation

Iranian drama, winner of Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Academy Awards and Golden Globes, and Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival 2011. "A middle-class Iranian couple, already in the midst of an unpleasant separation, find themselves drawn into a web of half-truths and manipulation after the husband hires a lower-class caretaker for his Alzheimer's-stricken, elderly father.
