The May Lady
A woman edging into middle age must make some tough choices about her life and her work in this drama from Iran. Forugh Kia (Minoo Farshi) is a woman in her early '40s who has reached a crossroads in both her personal and professional lives. Forugh is a documentary filmmaker who has been forced by economics to set aside more personal projects in order to accept a commission from a television network to make a simplistic film about "the perfect mother." But Forugh has issues of her own about her role as a mother. After a contentious divorce, Forugh has begun dating again, and has entered into a new relationship with a doctor. But Forugh's son, Mani (Mani Kasraiyan), doesn't approve of her new beau and Forugh has to choose between her own happiness and that of her son. Banooyn-E Ordibeheshti was the winner of the Special Jury Award at the 1998 Fajr Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
