A Hero

A Hero

A Hero

Straight from Cannes Festival Competition: this is the latest feature from celebrated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation - Oscar Best Foreign Film 2012, The Past, The Salesman).

Rahim (Amir Jadidi) is in jail because he was unable to pay a debt. He secures a two-day leave of absence from prison, during which he hopes to convince his creditor to withdraw the complaint. But things don't go as planned. With A Hero, Farhadi returns to Iran and his native language Farsi, following his 2018 Spanish feature Everybody Knows. One of the few directors to have won two Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film, critics have praised Farhadi's ability to weave moral ambiguity into intimate and intense dramas and stories of official intransigence.
