Synopsis

Even in times of crisis, ordinary people still have to get on with their lives - that's the message of this sharp-witted film from the Middle Eastern country of Lebanon. Telling the story of five Lebanese women whose lives overlap with each other's in often surprising ways. Director Nadine Labaki herself stars as Layale - a worker in the Beirut beauty salon that brings the women together. Despite being set in a place that has long been beset by violence and war, Caramel is not a film about politics but won widespread acclaim at film festivals around the world for its realism and originality.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
