When a young rebellious girl takes part in a fun robbery with a group of friends, she finds herself in much deeper trouble than she expected in this clear-cut, allegorical and unsettling moral drama that plunges deeply into the muddled, exasperating world of Iranian teenagers.
An ethical tale for a new era, Dressage is a sharp and provocative look at power, money, hypocrisy, and the gap between the growing social divisions within contemporary Iranian society.
