Directed by Michael Winterbottom
Trishna is something unexpected from hyper-diverse British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom (The Killer Inside Me, all the good Steve Coogan movies). So, in other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect from hyper-diverse British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom. A contemporary adaptation of a classic Thomas Hardy novel, Freida Pinto stars as an Indian woman who falls in love with a visiting English businessman, only to find their budding love challenged by the pressures of industrial stratification. And if that doesn’t sound fun, just think of it as a high-brow excuse to stare at Freida Pinto’s face for 117 minutes.
