Three Iranian couples and their assorted children and friends make their way from Tehran to the shores of the Caspian Sea for a long weekend in this film by Asghar Farhadi (A Separation). When one of the vacationers goes missing, their idyllic weekend turns into a moral whodunit. About Elly was actually filmed in 2009 but only released in the States several months ago after the breakout success of A Separation (which won both the Golden Globe and Academy Award in 2011 for Best Foreign Film). Iran; 118 min

 

When Iranian director About Elly premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, it announced THE ARRIVAL OF A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL TALENT. A gripping and adventurous work of cinema, Farhadi’s third feature combines the mounting tension of a psychological thriller with various levels of social allegory, including a barely veiled portrait of class and religious tensions inside Iran. Film-history buffs immediately spotted the influence of Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960 classic “L’Avventura” in this cunning ensemble drama about a group of friends on a seaside vacation torn apart by a woman’s unexplained disappearance. –Salon
