“A Separation” builds Iranian Oscar hopes

(Reuters) – Hollywood has often criticized Tehran for stifling movie-making, but the acclaimed film “A Separation” is breathing life into Iran’s hopes for a rare Oscar success.

Released in the United States on Friday after a year of award wins, Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s morally complex look at two contemporary Tehran families could earn Iran’s first foreign language Oscar nomination since 1998.

“A Separation” began 2011 as the first Iranian movie ever to win the prestigious Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in February. It went on to win best foreign language film awards from the U.S. National Board of Review and New York Film Critics Circle, and a Golden Globe nomination.
