A Separation was one of my most anticipated films from 2011. It was nominated for best foreign language film and best screenplay at this years Academy Awards. Foreign films rarely get nominated for major categories even when they’re vastly superior to their American counterparts. It was pretty exciting to see A Separation get that recognition from the Academy. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see it until mid-February, and it’s likely you haven’t either. The film has received a very slow release by Sony Picture Classics. I’m guessing they’re waiting to win the best foreign film Oscar to give the film a wider release. Most Oscar pundits consider it a shoe in. Are they right? Find out at IndiesUnchained!
