Iran | 107 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Fereydoun Jeyrani

A man takes his wife to an asylum to cure her neurotic tensions.

“Fereydoun Jeyrani’s elegant black-and-white thriller refracts Iranian gender politics through the prism of a twisty Hitchcockian noir.” Variety “Jeyrani’s chilly mood piece has all the stylistic signifiers of an art house niche item, but its luminous beauty and genre-friendly plot may boost its prospects beyond the festival bubble.” Hollywood Reporter
