A Hero Ghahreman

  Asghar Farhadi

  Iran     127 minutes


A complex web of lies, posturing, and manipulation envelops Asghar Farhadi’s (A Separation, The Salesman) brilliantly plotted, tension-filled cautionary tale. On short-term leave from the penitentiary where he’s been held after failing to repay a debt, Rahim (Amir Jadidi) is hopeful that a bagful of gold coins will buy his freedom. As things begin to not go as planned, Rahim’s entire future and that of his family hangs in the balance. Returning to his native Iran, the two-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker crafts a thrilling, layered drama that intelligently details the collision of hubris, morality, and vox populi.
