A Wedding Suit

January 4 at 4:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall

This caper tale featuring three adolescents who “borrow” a bespoke suit for a special occasion from a tailor’s shop (where one of them is apprenticing) is not only a charming comedy but also a shrewd social critique. Though a minor work in Kiarostami’s oeuvre, A Wedding Suit anticipates a number of his later motifs — social mobility, moral ambiguity, and a natural empathy for struggling children. (1976, subtitles, 59 minutes)
