“ a fevered melodrama conveyed in a poetically measured style”
—Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

Banned by the Iranian government and presumed lost for decades, the recent rediscovery of Mohammad Reza Aslani’s gothic tale of psychological unease is a major event for world cinema. The film depicts the fraught and fragile life of a paraplegic heiress pursued by men who may not have her best interests at heart. Free Member Monday — all AFS members receive free admission on February 21.
