Watch the First U.S. Trailer For Asghar Farhadi’s ‘The Past’



Sony Pictures Classics has premiered the U.S. trailer for Academy Award winner Asghar Farhadi’s The Past. The film stars Berenice Bejo, Ali Mosaffa, and Tahar Rahim, tells the story of a mother of two children trying to finalize a divorce so that she can move on with the new man in her life. The trailer looks extremely powerful, and based on Clayton’s and Karen’s 3.5 star reviews, I think we know this is one to look forward to seeing.

The Past is Iran’s official submission for the Foreign Language Oscar, something Farhadi won a couple years back for A Separation, and opens in New York and LA on December 20.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
