Salesman, The

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER! Best Foreign Language Film. Emad and Rama are a husband and wife who also happen to be actors. Taking on the roles of Willy and Linda Loman in a local production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, the themes of the play stealthily begin to make themselves felt in their lives off stage. They are forced to evacuate their collapsing Tehran apartment building, and within the first few days in their new home Rama is attacked by an intruder. As Rama attempts to navigate her new-found fear, an impasse grows between them as Emad longs to violently revenge himself against Rama’s attacker. From Iranian director Asghar Farhadi (The Past, A Separation), and winner of the Best Actor Award at Cannes for Shahab Hosseini in the role of Emad, THE SALESMAN is a characteristically taut study of human frailty and emotional complexity.
