This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

May 18–19 (times vary)

14A, coarse language, violence
Dir: Ziad Doueiri, France/Lebanon, 113 min. Adel Karam, Kamel El Basha, Camille Salameh. In Arabic with English subtitles. Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film

“After an argument about a balcony drainpipe escalates to harsh language, a Beirut mechanic demands an apology from a Palestinian construction foreman, which the foreman refuses. And, somehow, this leads to a national crisis. The latest from Lebanese auteur Doueiri draws on the history of the Middle East and long-standing tensions between Palestinians and Lebanese Christians. But even without that subtext, the film would still play. At its core this is a story about simple, stubborn pride, and what happens when anger obscures understanding. And Karam and El Basha make every new stage of their battle entirely convincing.”—Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
