Nahid

Drama, Romance 1h 45m 2015

Engrossing Iranian domestic drama about a young divorcee fighting for custody of her 10-year old son.

Set in a seaside port town in the north of Iran, the film stars Sareh Bayat (A SEPARATION) as an imperfect heroine struggling within a culture still bound by ancient laws regarding family and marriage. A closely observed and gripping melodrama with a terrific lead performance, from up-and-coming Iranian female director Ida Panahandeh.

“Panahandeh’s most winning asset is the star-turn by the striking actress Sareh Bayat (many filmgoers will know her as the errant caregiver in another martial drama, the Oscar-winning A Separation.” ~ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com.
