What we would do to be a part of that lunch…

Lebanese director, Nadine Labaki and her producer husband, Khaled Mouzanar, had lunch with the one and only Oprah Winfrey. The iconic talk-show host took to Instagram to share a picture from their gathering.

The 65-year-old media guru has previously expressed her love for Nadine’s Oscar nominated film Capernaum, so it is no surprise to see the trio dining together. Oprah shared a picture with her 16 million Instagram followers from the luncheon, which she captioned “Look who came for lunch, director extraordinaire @nadinelabaki and her producer husband Khaled. I love their movie #Capernaum so much. If you get the chance , See it!”

These past few months have been incredible for Nadine, who snagged several nominations and awards for her film. Back in May, she won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, where her film premiered to a 15-minute standing ovation. She was in the running for a BAFTA and a Golden Globe, but lost out to Netflix’s Roma. However, her film still has a winning chance at the Academy Awards, which is set to take place on February 24.
Earlier last month, Oprah tweeted her support for the film saying, “These 2 are so compelling on screen and worthy of your time. Story of a young boy who sues his parents for having children they can’t take care of. Makes you think of all the children for whom this story is a daily reality. Bravo team #Capernaum” 

However, the talk-show host wasn’t the only A-lister talking about the film. Marvel Cinematic Universe villain, Josh Brolin shared a lengthy post on Instagram about the film, which he captioned, “Finally! A film reminding me why I loved films in the first place; why I loved those late night stories told to me; why I knew I was fortunate to be able to make the decision to travel, get out of my comfort zone, and see that there were many different cultures, goings on, realities of poverty and desperation as well as care and altruism first ignited by the power of film, the power of storytelling. “
