A Hero, which is the latest film from Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, was one of the most acclaimed films to play at Cannes this year and its release has definitely been highly anticipated here in the States. The film deals with a man who has been imprisoned for being unable to pay a debt. When he gets a two-day leave, he tries to convince the man to whom he owes money to forgive the debt.

A Hero is Iran’s official entry for this year’s Best International Film Oscar. It will be released in the U.S. in early January of 2022.
