Streaming video - 2006

From the two-time Academy Award winning director of The Salesman and A Separation, Asghar Farhadi's Fireworks Wednesday is a gripping, suspenseful drama - a story of marital intrigue and betrayal set against the backdrop of the Persian New Year. Rouhi, a young bride-to-be, is hired as a maid for an affluent family in Tehran. Upon arriving, she is suddenly thrust into an explosive domestic conflict. The wife is convinced her husband is having an affair (with a recently divorced woman living next door) and enlists Rouhi as a spy, to follow her husband, and confirm her suspicions. What Rouhi discovers, however, threatens not only their marriage but her own future.
