Foreign Film: “About Elly” (Iran, drama, 2009, 119 minutes) @ Cranford Community Center
Aug 21 @ 2:00 pm

About Elly explores the powerful effects of one simple lie. In the wake of his failed marriage in Germany, Ahmad returns to Tehran. Ahmad’s friend Sepideh organizes a weekend getaway to the Caspian Sea with a group of old college friends. One member of the group sticks out: a pretty teacher named Elly, whom Sepideh thought would be a perfect match for Ahmad. In order to rent a spacious beach house for the group to share, Sepideh tells the elderly landlady that Ahmad and Elly are newlyweds. But the truth is that Elly has never met Ahmad, and she doesn’t share a close bond with the rest of the friends. On the first night of the trip, Elly endears herself to the tight-knit group. However, she vanishes without a trace on the following day, sparking a frantic search that sours the festivities and reveals the casual deceits that are shared among friends.—All Movie. Admission is free and all are welcome. Sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
