Talking Movies: Iranian Oscar hopeful

US-Iran relations may be at a low point, but one American institution - the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences - may be about to reward an Iranian film with an Oscar nomination.

Talking Movies' Tom Brooks reports on A Separation, a film that some see as a political critique of modern-day Iran.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
