2011 Best Original Screenplay Winner

A Separation


A running theme in this category is the depiction of ordinary people, even in Contagion we get a good idea of what effect of the epidemic has had on the average person.  A Separation stands out the most in this regard and I really liked how Farhadi was able to construct what is simply a no-win situation for any of the characters involved.  While I can’t entirely judge the dialogue in a foreign language film, it seemed perfectly solid if the sub-titles are to be judged.
