From Oscar-winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (The Salesman, The Past, A Separation) comes this intimate psychological thriller.

Amid the joyful reunion and festivities, the eldest daughter is abducted. In the tense days that follow, various family and community tensions surface and deeply hidden secrets are revealed. In Spanish with subtitles. (R, 132 mins)

“Farhadi’s storytelling has overpowering force.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Immensely watchable and thematically complex tale, which in some ways plays out like a deceptively conventional Agatha Christie-style whodunit.” – Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

“Quintessentially, and maybe to a fault, this is a Farhadi movie: another of the writer-director’s gripping studies of a family torn asunder by a compounding mess of deception and revelation.” – A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club
