Checking into Cairo Time 

Patricia Clarkson stars in the exquisite romantic drama.

Juliette Grant (Patricia Clarkson) travels to Cairo to visit with her UN-employed and absent husband. There, she is escorted around by his former colleague (Alexander Siddig), and the two feel a slight romantic spark as they wander about Cairo’s attractions. This is an unhurried drama about two people who are happy to bask in their mutual attraction, not act on it. The tension between Clarkson and Siddig is restrained to a fault. However, the duo simply enjoying each other’s company lends itself well to sumptuous shots of strolling amidst the heat and splendours of the city (the photography is exquisite). There isn’t much drama to get caught up in, but there is a lot to enjoy in Cairo Time.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
