Movie: Wadjda

Wadjda is the first feature-length movie to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first by a female Saudi filmmaker.  It is the heartwarming story of a Saudi girl who dreams of having a bicycle and who wants to use her prize money from a Quran recitation competition to buy one.  Film is in Arabic with English subtitles.  Trailer can be viewed here:  http://sonyclassics.com/wadjda/#/trailer 

Movie starts at 3:10 p.m.  Let's meet at the ticket window at 2:45 p.m. so we have time to buy snacks and get settled before the movie starts.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
