Stay afterward if you can for a simple soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. This is also free! We need volunteers to sign up to make soup or bread (also dessert) and we have a signup sheet at the library's front desk if you can help out.
The Salesman: Emad and Rana are a young, cosmopolitan couple starring in an amateur theater production of “Death of a Salesman.” During a rehearsal, their apartment building begins to collapse because of shoddy construction and they are forced to relocate to another dwelling. They are unaware that the new apartment has previously been occupied by a prostitute who entertained her clients there. Some were accustomed to calling at all hours, and one night Rana unwittingly buzzes open the entry door, thinking it is her husband. It isn’t. What follows is a horrific assault and a search for revenge and justice, made more difficult by the complicated bureaucracy in present day Iran, and by personal issues of pride and commitment. Emad and Rana’s domestic story is juxtaposed with that of Linda and Willy Loman in the play, and this Oscar-nominated thriller, according to one reviewer, is a suspenseful mixture of “Alfred Hitchcock and Arthur Miller.”
