Last night Ruba Nadda’s CAIRO TIME, starring Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig played terrifically to a sold out, 900-seat theater in Tribeca. Earlier that day, Nadda and her stars stopped by SoHo’s Apple Store for one of indieWIRE’s daily festival chats. The director spoke about her inspiration for making this film in Cairo, citing an early family trip to Egypt as the reason for setting the lush romantic drama with that city as its backdrop.
The film is gathering very positive word after it’s premiere. The Epoch Times says, “Nadda’s gentle rhythms and striking visuals make for a seductive cinematic blend. Never loud or crass, CAIRO is an adult film, in the classiest sense. A film of subtle charm.”
