Rock the Casbah

 

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE! Hiam Abbass (The Visitor) stars and Omar Sharif is featured in this bittersweet comedy about three upper middle class sisters and their mother who gather in their dearly departed father and husband’s villa during the three days of mourning called for by Moroccan tradition. Secrets come out, throwing the order once maintained by the patriarch into turmoil. A collective hysteria leads each of the women to face up to some home truths. Director Laila Marrakchi's previous film was Maroc, about a controversial romance between a Jew and a Muslim in contemporary Morocco.
