The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The premise is hardly new – a beauty salon as the cen­tre of fe­male so­cial life – but it feels fresh in this sen­sual tale of wor­ry­ing, wed­dings

and wax­ing in mod­ern-day Beirut. While the ti­tle and mainly fe­male cast sug­gest a sug­ary con­coc­tion, it’s noth­ing of the sort as novice di­rec­tor Nadine Labaki ad­dresses a range of is­sues fac­ing Le­banese women in this bittersweet com­edy.
