THE SALESMAN

Directed by Asghar Farhadi
US release date: January 27, 2017
A young couple, after just relocating to a new apartment, experiences a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home, dramatically changing the couple’s life and creating a simmering tension between husband and wife. Opens January 27, 2017.

After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. However, once relocated, a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life, creating a simmering tension between husband and wife. A master at exposing domestic discord through his multi-layered screenplays, Farhadi’s slow-burning, visceral drama explores the psychology of vengeance and a relationship put under strain while continuing to explore the condition of women in Iran and the male psyche.
