I'm only allowed a capsule review, so I'll just link to the festival page and add a couple of comments. Mostly, it's cool to see a film (especially from the Middle East) about the strength of women. And it's interesting to see a town from that region (specifically, from Lebanon) where different religions--Christians and Muslims in this case--coexist mostly peacefully. It does rely on some silly stereotypes of men as easily fooled aggressors and women as the much smarter peacemakers. But that's the world of the film, and it works.
It plays at SFIFF twice:

Running Time: 100 minutes
My Total Minutes: 277,183
