Seasonal Special Happenings

Family Matters

When: Fri., May 30 2014

Is Iranian family drama your idea of waterslide fun? Did you enjoy the critically acclaimed Iranian flick from 2011 A Separation? That same director, the buoyantly goateed Asghar Farhadi, returns with The Past, a story about a woman in France whose estranged Iranian husband returns to finalize a divorce. Except she’s started a new relationship, and the ex is none too pleased. Word on the street is that this is superb in just about every way we measure a movie’s success, not the least of which is star Berenice Bejo, the beauty from 2012’s The Artist, who took home the best actress prize at Cannes for her performance in Farhadi’s latest. It screens tonight at 5 and tomorrow at 6:45 p.m. at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Allard)
