An award-winning audience pleaser at the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals, this is both a love letter to a city and a sweeping romantic travelogue in the tradition of such films as 'Brief Encounter' and 'Summertime'. Oscar-nominee Patricia Clarkson stars as a beautiful American abroad in Egypt, who finds herself enamored by more than the sun-swept vistas of Cairo. Juliette travels to Cairo to meet her husband for a three week vacation. When he is unavoidably delayed, he sends his trusted friend Tareq to keep her company. As he guides her 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.
It's hard to think of another actress who's as consistently compelling as Patricia Clarkson. - New York Observer
