Cairo Time

Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (Shutter Island, Pieces of April, The Station Agent) takes center stage in Cairo Time. Critics have praised her performance as the best of her career calling it "a quietly dazzling star turn" and declaring that Clarkson is "at her peak...she is one of the most versatile actresses of her generation, as well as a sex symbol to thinking persons of any gender."

Clarkson 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, Clash of the Titans, 24, Syriana) 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 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.
