The Salesman, winner of this year’s Oscar for best foreign-language film, is available on Amazon Prime starting today. The Iranian suspense drama is in Persian, with English subtitles.

In the film, a couple involved in a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman move into a new home, where the wife is assaulted and marital tensions ensue. For his performance as the husband, Shahab Hosseini took home best actor honors at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Writer/director Asghar Farhadi made news of his own when he didn’t attend this year’s Oscar ceremony:

If you’re not an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can still stream The Salesman. It’s available for $4.99 from several sites, including Amazon Video, iTunes, GooglePlay, FandangoNow, Vudu, PlayStation and YouTube.
