Sony Pictures acquires Nader and Simin Posted Saturday, May 07, 2011 12:27:03 AM
Sony Pictures Classics have acquired all North American rights to Asghar Farhadi's Nader and Simin: A Separation from Memento Films International.
Written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, the Iranian movie won the Golden Bear at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival.
Farhadi also won the Silver Bear award of the 59th International Berlin Film Festival and the Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature of the 8th Tribeca Film Festival for his 2009 About Elly.
Nader and Simin: A Separation recounts the story of a couple who are getting a divorce, while considering the future of their only child.
Farhadi received a USD 25,000 grant from the Motion Picture Association and the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) for the script development of the drama which was assessed as "a beautiful human study of a very normal everyday life, with people in a region who are being challenged all the time by issues social, geographical and financial."
The Hollywood Reporter has predicted the film to be among next year's foreign language film nominees of the Oscars.
