ABOUT ELLY

(2009) dir Asghar Farhadi w/Golshifteh Farahani, Shahab Hosseini, Taraneh Alidoosti [119 min; 35mm]
From the Oscar winning director of A Separation comes this gripping mystery set during a holiday retreat. With the return of their close friend Ahmad from Germany, a group of old college pals decide to reunite for a fun weekend outing by the Caspian Sea. But, when Elly, the guest of one of their number, mysteriously disappears, a series of deceptions and revelations is put in motion that threatens to shatter everything they hold dear.

“A fascinating discovery from a filmmaker whose sensitivity to the most confounding motivations is equalled only by his compassion for those who succumb to them.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“It’s breezy, then suspenseful, and gradually, crushingly sad. On its own terms, it’s a perfect film.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture

“A thriller perched right on the fault line between modern thinking and Islamic tradition.” – Bob Mondello, NPR
