Unless a thunderstorm ruins everything, I’ll be presenting a free screening of Nadine Labaki’s Caramel down at the WestJet stage at Harbourfront tonight.
It is the outlier in this year’s “funny girls” program, not being much of a comedy. It’s got a pleasant enough vibe, but Labaki’s not really interested in belly laughs; she’s just not making that sort of movie.
Still, it’s a nice little picture, and if you want to watch a movie about people coming together in a beauty salon on a sultry Toronto night, I can’t think of a better place to do it than the waterfront. Come down, why not? I did say it was free, didn’t I?
