A Separation

In the first minutes of A Separation, a married couple is faced with a difficult decision. Simin wants to leave Iran with her husband and daughter. Her husband, Nader, wants to stay in Iran and look after a parent with Alzheimer's. When their request for a divorce is denied, they agree to a separation, which sets the stage for a series of events that reveal rifts, lies, and half truths between generations, ideologies, religions, genders and classes in Tehran.

A Separation is a thrilling domestic drama that is compelling as both drama and debate.  
I promise, you won't forget this captivating film anytime soon. Yeh, in a good way.
