Cairo Time

Patricia Clarkson (superb) stars as Juliette, a New York fashion editor who travels to Egypt for a vacation with her husband, a UN official. When he is unavoidably delayed, he sends his trusted friend Tareq (Alexander Siddig) to keep her company. As Tareq guides Juliette through the sights, sounds and unique customs of the exotic city, unexpected feelings emerge leading to an awakening of emotion that takes Juliette by surprise. In the tradition of 'Brief Encounter' and 'Lost in Translation', the award-winning 'Cairo Time' is both a love letter to a city and a poignant romantic drama for the ages.
