Leila’s Brothers

Directed by Saeed Roustaee

Cast: Farhad Aslani, Navid Mohammadzadeh, Payman Maadi, Saeed Poursamimi, Taraneh Alidoosti

One of the most confident and complex dramas of the last decade, this expansive film charts the interpersonal dynamics and machinations of a contemporary Iranian family. The charismatic and strong-willed Leila (Taraneh Alidoosti) is at its center, struggling to make a life for herself and her four brothers while always at odds with their stubborn father. Director Saeed Roustaee weaves together a familial saga that is equal parts sprawling and intimate, asking difficult questions about the power of family and tradition in the face of economic necessity.
