Rated PG-13 · 100 minutes · 2012

Comedy drama, Musical
It’s worth wondering: Should a film that tackles an issue as important as the role of women in the Middle East be more realistic than Where Do We Go Now? This Lebanese film doesn’t feel as authentic as director Nadine Labaki must want it to be; then again, why does the impression of American audiences mean much, if she’s making it for audiences in the Middle East? It’s a warm-enough movie, and there are certainly slices of real life here, but light moments mixed in with sectarian violence might send a mixed message. It’s an interesting find, and Labaki certainly isn’t avoiding conflict—but she isn’t meeting it head-on, either. That’s what helped make Iran’s Oscar-winning A Separation so unique.
