Story


An award-winning audience pleaser at the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals, Ruba Nadda's CAIRO TIME 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 sunswept vistas of Cairo. Juliette (Clarkson), a fashion magazine editor in her 40s, travels to Cairo to meet her husband for a three week vacation. When he is unavoidably delayed, he sends his trusted friend Tareq (Alexander Siddig) 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.
