A landmark work of Indian feminism, Spices was made by famed filmmaker Ketan Mehta, featuring Smita Patel in the leading role. Patel, possibly the greatest actress of her generation, plays a woman who faces the oppressive realities of life as a woman in India. Spurning the advance of a corrupt tax collector, the heroine is forced to take refuge in a pepper factory. Spices is a Hindi film with English subtitles. ~ Sean Hurley, Rovi
