Posted Thu Jun 28, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Asghar Farhadi's Academy Award-winning foreign drama will debut on Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony has slated 'A Separation' for Blu-ray on August 21.

Simin (Leila Hatami) wants to leave Iran with her husband Nader (Peyman Moadi) and daughter Termeh (Sarina Farhadi) and sues for divorce when Nader refuses to leave behind his Alzheimer-suffering father (Ali-Asghar Shahbazi). Her request having failed, Simin returns to her parents' home but Termeh decides to stay with Nader. When Nader hires a young woman to assist with his father in his wife's absence, he hopes that his life will return to a normal state. However, when he discovers that the new maid has been lying to him, he realizes that there is more on the line than just his marriage.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include: Commentary with Asghar Farhadi, An Evening with Asghar Farhadi, and Birth of a Director.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
