Iris portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art, and people is life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working.

About Elly is a terrific film written and directed by Asghar Farhadi prior to making the Academy Award-winning A Separation and The Past. It is now getting a well-deserved U.S. release, and richly repays the wait. Like Farhadis other films, it is full of subtle motivations and believable characters, building intense emotional involvement as the story unfolds. Beautiful Sepideh (Golshifteh Farahani, The Patience Stone, Exodus: Gods and Kings), is a friendly young wife and mother with a tendency to stretch the truth to try to make things better. She arranges a weekend getaway to the seashore with three couples who were friends at university, with their young children, and includes Ahmad (Shahab Hosseini), the newly-divorced brother of one of them, home from Germany looking for a wife. She also invites, with considerable arm-twisting, Elly (Taraneh Alidoosti), the sweet but shy kindergarten teacher of her daughter, to get acquainted with Ahmad. Everyone is having a good time until tragedy suddenly strikes, with a mysterious disappearance. Recriminations ensue and relationships are strained. The friends try to cover up the truth, and lie piles upon lie leading to disaster. (Fully subtitled)
