Thompson on Hollywood
With Almodovar's The Skin I Live In out of the foreign Oscar race (Spain chose Black Bread instead), as I had suggested, Sony Pictures Classics has indeed picked up U.S. rights to its fourth foreign language Oscar submission, Lebanon's Where Do We Go Now?, directed by Nadine Labacki, which played at Cannes and beat out considerable competition to win the audience award at Toronto.

Pathé International sold the film, produced by Anne-Dominque Toussaint of Les Films des Tournelles, which also won Best European Film at the 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival. States SPC:

“Nadine Labacki has made a warm, human film that is both perfect for this moment in time and will satisfy audiences across the country."

Here's the synopsis:

Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, WHERE DO WE GO NOW? follows the antics of the town's women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war. Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers.
