Following the steps of Precious, Slumdog Millionaire, Eastern Promises, Amelie, American Beauty and more, the Lebanese dramedy Where Do We Go Now? took home the top prize at Toronto International Film Festival and now it is arriving in theaters. Today we’ve got a new trailer for the Sony Pictures Classics release, which paints a much lighter tone than I thought Nadine Labaki’s film had. The story of stopping a religious war by hiring Ukranian strippers to distract the men is quite amusing and I’ll certainly check this out if a get a chance. See the trailer below via Apple.
Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, WHERE DO WE GO NOW? follows the antics of the town’s women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war.

Where Do We Go Now? hits theaters April 6th, 2012.
