Noura is a Tehran-based lawyer whose license has been suspended while her muckraking journalist husband eludes authorities by escaping to the south. She lives a dry, solitary life in her cramped apartment, dreaming up potential exit strategies. Early in the movie, she concocts a scheme for using her pregnancy to leave the country. Wellspoken and educated, she comes across more as bold strategist than dreamer, the ideal heroine for this type of frantic tale. (…)
Mohammad Rasoulof delivers a suspenseful and moving portrait of modern censorship in the country that has currently placed him in its governmental crosshairs. Along with fellow Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Rasoulof has been sentenced to six years for his speaking his mind. Good Bye doesn’t literally tell his story, but it clearly espouses his views.
