A successful woman must slow down to let love catch up to her in CAIRO TIME, starring Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson in the role of her career. Clarkson (Shutter Island, Pieces of April, The Station Agent) is Juliette, a busy New York fashion editor who travels to Egypt for a vacation with her husband, a UN official. When he gets tied down with business in Gaza, he sends his former security officer Tareq (Alexander Siddig, Clash of the Titans, 24, Syriana) to keep her company. As Tareq guides Juliette around the Egyptian capital, both realize they have journeyed to unexplored places in the heart. The award-winning CAIRO TIME is both a love letter to a city and a poignant romantic drama in the tradition of Brief Encounter and Lost in Translation.

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.

When he is unavoidably delayed, he sends his trusted friend Tareq (Alexander Siddig) to keep her company.
