Internationally acclaimed Iranian director Asghar Farhadi brings us another understated masterpiece about intricate relationships and inevitable revenge. Emad and Rana are a married couple of actors in Tehran, lovely and sympathetic if a bit high-strung. When an intruder randomly assaults Rana in her own home, she begins to emotionally unravel. The incident becomes a pivotal moment in their collective well being and Emad begins to aimlessly investigate the crime. What will he do if and when he finds the perpetrator? Observant, suspenseful, and straight-forward, The Salesman is an enquiry into the psychology of vengeance and devotion. United States Premiere. (France / Iran, 2016)
