Moral Dilemmas Dominate 'A Separation'

Iranian writer/director Asghar Farhadi's A Separation opens with a Rashomon-like question-and-answer session before an unseen judge. Husband Nader and wife Simin sit facing the camera, debating the necessity of a divorce Simin advocates. She insists on raising their 11-year-old daughter in a more equitable society, one not separated in terms of gender, class, religion and modern vs. traditional values.
