Foreign trailer for About Elly, which screened at the 2009 AFI Fest.
A joyful party of friends—three married couples with kids plus the newly divorced Ahmad (Shahab Hosseini) and young kindergarten teacher Elly (Taraneh Alidousti)—drive to the Caspian Sea for a three-day holiday. The plan, masterminded by Sepideh (Golshifteh Farahani), is to introduce Elly to Ahmad, who’s looking for a new wife. Sepideh tells the elderly lady who rents them a big beach house the first lie: that Ahmad and Elly are newlyweds. Given Iranian social conventions, this is understandable, but it begins a chain that will have dire consequences.
