The movie that was playing was "The Band's Visit", a 2007 Israeli-Arab movie about an orchestra band of eight people from Alexandria, Egypt who land into Israel to play at an Arab cultural academy, goes to a wrong, but similar sounding town in the middle of the desert due to a mis-understanding of one of the band members at the airport. When they realize that they have landed at the wrong place, the only bus that comes to that town has already left for the day. They are forced to stay overnight in the town. The movie shows the undercurrent of emotions that run amongst different people in the night that they spend in the town split amongst three different families as there is no hotel in town.
The movie is slow paced, with almost half the dialogues in English with a sprinkling of Jewish and Arabic in-between. (All the movies screened are anyway sub-titled) It is not dialogue heavy as well. Short bursts of talk, long silences and pauses, wonderful music, a longing loneliness and a slight humor define the movie, with some lovely acting by the key folks.
When you get a chance to watch it, do so. You'll not feel bad over it at all. This movie won a bunch of awards and I felt that the movie was worth it.
