Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize, A HERO looks like a lock to be an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film—and perhaps even to gain a Best Picture nomination, as few foreign films, Oscar winner PARASITE to the contrary—ever do. Asghar Farhadi (A SEPARATION, EVERYBODY KNOWS) has made a film that’s "emotionally complex and mysteriously stirring" (The Wall Street Journal.) Rahim, a winning, charming calligrapher, has been somewhat unjustly incarcerated for a debt. But he gets two days leave, in which he hopes to find a way to clear his name. He embarks on a quest that has more twists and turns than a long stairway to heaven with endless turns. "Keeps us guessing right to its powerful final shot"—Time Out.
