Directed by London-born filmmaker Zeina Durra with a loving, luxurious eye, Egypt’s ancient temples and expansive landscapes have never looked so beguiling. British actress Andrea Riseborough - so good at combining fragility with steeliness - is masterful as a woman contemplating life’s meaning. An atmospheric and artful drama.
