Worth Watching: Patricia Clarkson in a Trailer for Cairo Time
Although it's not even Sunday, there's an indie trailer I want to feature today because it actually looks really good. I'd heard of this film before, but was delightfully surprised by this, the story wasn't what I expected at first but it looks quite wonderful. Cairo Time co-stars Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig and is directed by Canadian filmmaker Ruba Nadda. We all know who Clarkson is, but Siddig is a great actor you may recognize from Kingdom of Heaven, Syriana, "24" (as Hamri) and even the Clash of the Titans remake. I don't want to say anything else about this, because it's best if you just watch the story unfold in the trailer.

A romantic drama about a brief, unexpected love affair in Cairo that catches two people totally off-guard.
Cairo Time is both written and directed by veteran Canadian filmmaker and NYU graduate Ruba Nadda, an acclaimed writer and director of some 17 films previously including Wet Heat Drifts Through the Afternoon, I Always Come to You and Black September. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and has played at many other film fests around the world. IFC Films is distributing in the US. Cairo Time will arrive in limited theaters starting on August 6th. For more details, check out the official website: cairotime.ca.
you're right, alex.......this looks very good. wonderful locations; great actors; and a story that (while with a romantic theme) doesn't seem sappy and appears to be asking some interesting questions on what it means to be in a relationship. i'm looking forward to it.

"Siddig is a great actor you may recognize from Kingdom of Heaven, Syriana, "24" (as Hamri) and even the Clash of the Titans remake".... What about DS9 as Doctor Bashir???

Nice to see Alexander Siddig in a film for a change instead of Deep Space nine.
