Caramel the movie

I went to GSC last Friday and notice this one International Movie that caught my eye,Caramel.By the picture if the poster,I tought so it will be a great movie.I try to take a look at the poster but the writing seems so little and yes,i have long-sighted symptom but i have not wear any spectacles last one only lasts me for about 1 week.haha. :P Back to the story,Caramel.

here's the poster :

And this is the sypnopsis i got from Wikipedia:

"Caramel revolves around the intersecting lives of five Lebanese women. Layale (Nadine Labaki) works in a beauty salon in Beirut along with two other women, Nisrine (Yasmine Al Masri) and Rima (Joanna Moukarzel). Each one has a problem: Layale is stuck in a dead-end relationship with a married man; Nisrine is no longer a virgin but is set to be married and in the Arab world pre-marital sex is not accepted; Rima is attracted to women; Jamale (Gisèle Aouad), a regular customer and wannabe actress, is worried about getting old; Rose (Sihame Haddad), a tailor with a shop next to the salon, is an old woman who had devoted her life to taking care of her mentally unbalanced older sister Lili (Aziza Semaan), but has found her first love. The film doesn't refer to any of the political problems or recent warfare that has troubled Lebanon. Rather, Labaki's tale paints everyday people with everyday problems."
