Movie Social (The Past - Le Passé)

  • Reitz Union Auditorium 686 Museum Rd Gainesville, FL, 32603 United States (map)

Come join us for a movie viewing of The Past at the Reitz Union Auditorium! All films are completely free and open for everyone, no student ID required! The auditorium is located on the second floor of the Reitz Union near the Grand Ballroom.

The Past is in French with English subtitles and starts promptly at 7:30 pm. We recommend arriving to the cinema before or at 7:20.

An Iranian man deserts his French wife and her two children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife starts up a new relationship, a reality her husband confronts upon his wife's request for a divorce.

The Past is clearly the work of a master dramatist, and precious few filmmakers in world cinema are currently operating at Farhadi’s level.

Another stunning drama that confirms Farhadi’s artistic preeminence in making films that are simultaneously intimate psychological portraits of interpersonal conflict and detailed, nerve-wracking mysteries .
— James Kendrick via Q Network Film Desk
Writer-director Asghar Farhadi’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning A Separation is an intensely gripping emotional drama with a superb script and a trio of terrific central performances from Berenice Bejo, Tahar Rahim and Ali Mossaffa.
