* Divorce Iranian Style, in New York

Directed by Kim Longinotto and Ziba Mir-Hosseini
80 MINS.

One woman tells the judge her husband is crazy: in 30 years he has refused to let her answer the phone. (In Iran "craziness" is one of the few acceptable grounds for divorce when proceedings are brought by a woman; for men, divorce is granted upon request.) A 16-year-old, married at age 14 to a man 2 1/2 times her age, explains that she desperately wants a divorce to go back to school. Another pleads for custody of her 4-year-old daughter, having already lost custody of the older child. "You're poisoning my tea," mutters the judge to a woman who insists he find her misplaced file within the hour (he had suggested she return in a week). Inside an Iranian divorce court, a stream of veiled women (some only teenager others elderly) make use of reason, wit, charm, and chicanery to get what they want above all else: a divorce. Daily: 2, 3:40, 5:20, 7, 8:40, 10:20
