2012's Oscar winner for best foreign language film, "A Separation" introduced a phenomenal new talent to the world in director Asghar Farhadi. The good news is that Farhadi has been making quietly brilliant cinema for over a decade. And these films are slowly making their way onto a wider stage. 2009's About Elly is a perfect case in point. A group of friends leave Tehran for a long weekend on the Caspian Sea. A young nursery teacher named Elly is invited along to join the good friends and family. The reason is soon made apparent. She's being set-up with a recently divorced man. What seems simple on the surface rarely is in a Farhadi film, and over an easy-going holiday, tensions rise until a crisis point is triggered, and Elly goes missing. A mystery develops and as the drama heightens, Farhadi zooms in on the issues inherent in truth, lies, and the places in between. What is the truth About Elly?
