In 3 FACES (SE ROKH) a distraught girl, whose family refuses to let her attend a Tehran conservatory, reaches out to two filmmakers for help but appears to commit suicide on a smartphone video she sends them. Actress Behnaz Jafari and director Jafar Panahi play themselves as they travel to a remote Iranian village in search of the truth.

In recommendations, Mark Pfeiffer falls for director Sebastián Lelio’s GLORIA BELL starring Julianne Moore. Paul Markoff picks film critic Josh Larsen’s book MOVIES ARE PRAYERS: HOW FILMS VOICE OUR DEEPEST LONGINGS.
