Flowing from scene to scene, A Separation had me mesmerized, following the characters intently as it weaved through the various turns and developments that were seamlessly fastened to the progression of the story. From the acting, directing, and writing, this movie was brilliantly structured. Even with its multiple levels of twists and character nuances, this movie was so dexterously balanced, that it was painless to follow and equally as easy to connect with. This film is definitely one of the best of the year, and deserves every ounce of praise it is receiving.

Verdict: Go See It In Theaters
