(Lebanon, 2007, 95 min., dir. Nadine Labaki, in Arabic and French with English subtitles)

Lebanon’s 2008 Academy Award submission for best foreign language film

Audiences around the world have embraced this deliciously indulgent and intimate account of five Lebanese women working together in a beauty parlor. Beautiful Layla is oblivious to the gaze of a local admirer and instead fixates on a married man. Nisrine will soon be married but is afraid her fiance will discover he isn’t her first lover. Rima has designs on one of her customers. Jamal is an aspiring actress refusing to grow old, while aging Rose is overwhelmed when she discovers true love for the first time. As the women from different generations share in each other’s experiences, the beauty parlor becomes a colorful hub of friendship and wisdom.
