Asghar Farhadi’s latest film is yet another expertly crafted pressure cooker of tension set in contemporary Iran. Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, A Hero follows Rahim (Amir Jadidi), a father imprisoned for an unpaid debt. While on a two-day leave, he and his fiancée hatch a scheme to convince his creditor (Mohsen Tanabandeh) to withdraw his complaint, but the plan spirals out of control when Rahim becomes the focus of a local news story. This incisive comment on justice and human frailty gradually performs a sleight of hand, beginning as a moral tale tinged with suspense before segueing into something far more surprising and psychologically rich. An Amazon Studios release.
