A comedy drama by Nadine Labaki, it approaches religious strife in a remote Christian/Muslim village in Lebanon. The women in the village plot to make peace between their hotheaded men. One critic describes it as a “cheerful mess” with dance, slapstick, social satire, and tragedy all woven together. The centerpiece of our dinner will be Makloubeh, literally “upside down,” a layered dish of rice, eggplant, lamb, and spices with side salad, pita bread, mezze platters, almond cream pudding, and date cookies. Salam!
