A Separation Movie Review

[A Separation
Written & Directed by Asghar Farhadi
Starring: Peyman Maadi, Leila Hatami, and Sareh Bayat
MPAA: PG-13 - For Mature Thematic Material]

Even the most religious of all people sin. It's known fact because, well, everyone sins. Everyone usually tries their best to do good so that good will find them, but it's never that simple, isn't it? Even priests are frequently caught with underage sex offenses. How is it possible that even the most pious people could commit an atrocity? Because, as Roger Ebert put it in his excellent review of today's movie, "No list of rules can account for human feelings."
