Movie Review

A Separation

I’m so glad I finally found the time to watch Asghar Farhadi’s critically acclaimed 2011 film A Separation. I know it’s starting to sound cliché because I keep saying the same things over and over again about the films that I feature in my blog, but this film is again, one of the best films I’ve ever seen. 519 more words
