Boarding Pass
aka Kart-e Parvaz
First screened in November 2017
Director: Mehdi Rahmani. Cast: Mansour Shahbazi, Neda Jebraili, Mohammad-Ali Najafi, Asghar Rafijam, Shirin Yazdanbakhsh. Screenplay: Amir Arabi, Mehdi Rahmani, and Babak Mirzakhani.

Twitter Capsule: Desperate custody-battle drama, medical suspenser, and smuggling thriller converge around two well-drawn characters.

VOR:   At times the plight of the characters and the abjection of Neda in particular can feel overdrawn, but this is robust as personal and political cinema.
