ShawnD's rating of the film Cairo 6,7,8

Unsure how I came across Cairo 678, but its story of women fighting against a culture of sexual harassment is powerful. The film wanders a bit early and doesn't lack for melodrama and self-righteousness, but once the story settles it becomes more than a message movie. The direction is excellent but what makes it work is the chemistry between the three leads, we care about each of them, but for different reasons.
