A SEPARATION (Asghar Farhadi, 2011)

****½
Iran
Out of a tangle of decent people, murky intentions and jarring consequences, Farhadi devises a wrenching, escalating mess and orchestrates it impeccably.

While he very much keeps the trials and tribulations of ordinary people at the forefront and never allows the narrative to stall, via the not so subtle subtext he gives the patriarchy a thorough savaging.
