THE SALESMAN (FORUSHANDE)
Directed by Asghar Farhadi
Rated PG: coarse language; violence
The Salesman is the story of a couple whose relationship begins to turn sour during their performance of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. Eventually, an incident linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life.
