The Band's Visit

A small Israeli film about a 7 member Egyptian policeman band that is invited to play at a city in Israel at the opening of an Arab cultural center. The band goes to the wrong town and has to stay overnight to catch the bus the next morning. There is no hotel, so they are 'put up' by the townspeople. The movie is about their interaction. You won't remember this film very long after you see it, but it is a nice way to spent 87 minutes.
