Caramel

Yesterday’s movie inspired me to share with you all the title of one of my favorite movies. It is a Lebanese film called Caramel ( سكر بنات ). I think you can find it on iTunes for rental or purchase. Caramel follows the lives (and romantic struggles) of several different women who work at a salon in Beirut. Though some consider it a chick flick/romantic comedy, I think it definitely carries some cultural weight and value. The director, Nadine Labaki, is also the main actress  and a force to be reckoned with in Lebanese film (she has several other widely acclaimed movies). Let me know if you watch Caramel and we can talk about it!

  1. Hey Andrea! This is Alice — I talked to you briefly about Caramel after class today. I got a chance to see the trailer and it looks great! Do you think our civ class would be up for an end of the quarter movie party? 🙂

    • Alice– what a lovely idea! I can see if we can get the gender studies building reserved during reading period for a screening.I’d offer my apartment but I don’t have a television….. I’ll also send out a doodle poll later on this week to see which date works best for those who are interested in attending!
