A Hero

A Hero ★★★★½

Asghar Farhadi returns to his signature style and being at the top of his game with the excellent 'A Hero.' It doesn't have the narrative power or surprising turns of Farhadi's masterpieces 'About Elly' (2009) and 'A Separation' (2011). But his remarkable ability to build a smart and thoughtful story about morality and the desperation to prove oneself to the world is simply something to admire.
