    There are surprising developments and revelations along the way, and they all eventually dovetail into a beautiful conclusion.

    It's the flesh-and-blood lead performance by Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani as a profoundly conflicted Muslim wife and mother that seals this cinematic deal. She's superb.
