Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The British/Lebanese Leila and the Wolves features Nabila Zeitouni as Leila. Having survived numerous Beirut bombings, Leila's resilience is intended to symbolize the endurance of all Lebanese women. The "wolves," in this instance, are of the human variety: male predators who continue to rattle sabres and wage wars, no matter the price the innocent must pay. Curiously, while offering a feminist viewpoint, the film implies that the "liberated" Lebanese woman is more a part of the problem than a part of the solution. Filmed in Arabic, Leila and the Wolves is available in both subtitled and dubbed English versions.
