The Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner template works to winning effect in Sophie Boutros’ comedy-drama that casts a shrewd eye over the tensions between Syria and Lebanon. Therese, the wife of the mayor of a Lebanese village is preparing to meet her daughter’s suitor and family, who are, unbeknownst to Theresa, Syrian. Therese still mourns for her brother who was killed in a Syrian bombing some twenty years ago and been outspoken in her prejudice towards the neighbouring country ever since. Her prejudices will, however, be confronted over an exceedingly uncomfortable dinner party.
