A Hero is not the most essential Asghar Farhadi movie, but its best qualities exemplify what makes him such an important filmmaker.

Farhadi works in a key of wide-screen realism, the better to let everyone have their say.

January 21, 2022 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Farhadi delivers another knotty morality tale with his superb new film, A Hero.... a quietly devastating portrait of a man damned.

January 21, 2022 | Full Review…

"A Hero" is a simple story of how quickly things can fall apart, especially for those who are already vulnerable or prone to losing.

January 20, 2022 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A bubbling thriller about one man's two-day leave from jail and how one innocence-driven good deed tangles itself in a mess that jeopardizes his chances of getting out of jail permanently.

January 20, 2022 | Full Review…

Farhadi wrings two magnificently raw performances from both actors, providing A Hero with its one and only honest truth.
