Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) won the Best Actress prize at Cannes for her starring role in Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi's masterful follow-up to his Oscar-winning A Separation. Bejo plays a French wife and mother whose estranged Iranian husband comes to France to finalize their divorce. But her two daughters from a different father, the young stepson of her current partner, and the hidden truth behind an attempted suicide complicate matters. “A superbly written, directed and acted drama that commands attention every step of the way.” –The Hollywood Reporter.
