Enter below for a double pass to the latest Magic Must See Movie - Capharnaum

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki's Capharnaum ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. Zain’s large family live hand to mouth in a squalid apartment, in Lebanon. The kids work instead of going to school. When Zain’s 11-year-old sister is sold into marriage, he flees the family home in search of a better life.

He is taken in and lovingly cared for by an illegal Ethiopian worker, Rahil, who lives in a shanty house with her baby. But when Rahil disappears, Zain is suddenly left to fend for himself and her baby, resorting to increasingly desperate measures to survive.
Director Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?) cast non-professional actors from displaced backgrounds similar to their characters, resulting in authentic and extraordinary performances.

Capharnaum has been Oscar nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
