Summary note
From the Academy Award winning director of *A Separation* and *The Salesman* comes this gripping mystery set among a group of old friends on a holiday retreat. With the return of their friend Ahmad from Germany, a group of old college pals (two married couples and a brother and sister, along with three young kids) decide to reunite for a weekend outing by the Caspian Sea. The fun starts right away as they quickly catch on to the plan of lively Sepideh, who has brought along Elly, her daughter's kindergarten teacher, in hopes of setting her up with recently divorced Ahmad. Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the **Berlin International Film Festival.** Winner of the Best Narrative Feature Award at the **Tribeca Film Festival.** *"It is perhaps Farhadi's richest, most complex and ambitious." -Peter Keough, **Boston Globe***
