Cairo Time

This sensitive, subtly powerful love story focuses on Juliette (Academy Award(R)-nominee and Emmy-winner Patricia Clarkson), a long-married magazine editor who travels to Cairo to meet her husband, a UN official working in Gaza, for a much-needed vacation together. When work delays his arrival, he asks his friend and former security officer Tareq to show Juliette around the unfamiliar metropolis. At first overwhelmed, Juliette finds herself gradually falling under the city’s spell–and, unexpectedly, under Tareq’s as well.
