Imagine looking your brother’s murderer in the eye. What would you say, when the killers still control the country? Joshua Oppenheimer’s companion piece to the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing follows an optometrist, Adi, who seeks out the men responsible for his older brother’s death and asks them to acknowledge their responsibility, putting his own safety on a knife-edge.

Several middle class friends meet up for a long weekend at a beach house on the Caspian Sea. Elly doesn’t really fit in, she’s much younger, a kindergarten teacher who has been invited along as a possible match for one of the friends, whose marriage recently fell apart. But things don’t go according to plan…

This masterly film from the director of A Separation and The Past exposes the faultlines buried deep within modern Iranian society.

"It’s breezy, then suspenseful, and gradually, crushingly sad. On its own terms, it’s a perfect film." David Ehrenstein, New York Magazine

"About Elly shows that the ethical dilemmas of ordinary adults can, with this level of talent, become as gripping as any thriller." Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post

"This superb, suspenseful film opens as a playful comedy of vacationing couples and awkward romance, one that might be set in the French countryside, but by the end has become a moral drama likely to corrode your certainties." Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
