NARRATIVE FEATURE | 88 MIN | 2010

CAIRO TIME

There are paths we take that lead to unexpected destinations, and there are paths that begin in places we never knew we were, and end in places we don't see coming. In this poignant story by Ruba Nadda, happily married Juliette (Patricia Clarkson) finds one such path after being separated from her husband in the overwhelming city of Cairo. While waiting for her husband's return, Juliette experiences the unique beauty of Egypt with his friend Tareq (Alexander Siddig), and the two fall into a tender and effortless friendship.

Clarkson and Siddig perform with quiet restraint yet powerful emotion in a cross-cultural love story that moves gracefully with small gestures and subtle glances, saying exactly what can't be said out loud. With a gentle hand, Nadda guides a tale of two worlds changed forever by a series of small yet profound moments.
