TWO & TWO - BABAK ANVARI (2011)
Made in Great Britain but set in an Iranian school, Two & Two is an allegorical tale about a teacher telling his class of young boys that what they thought was the sum of 2 + 2 is wrong. With a writing credit for Gavin Cullen and its director, there are obvious similarities to George Orwell's 1984, where the populace are forever being told that they have in fact been fighting a different enemy to the one they thought. Two & Two was nominated for a BAFTA in 2012 and is also one of my all time favourites. Anvari has since made the critically acclaimed horror feature film, Under The Shadow, also set in Iran.
