Trishna Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P194595~Michael Winterbottom~michaelwinterbottom]]'s Trishna, a modern retelling of [[Performer~P310197~Thomas Hardy~thomashardy]]'s Tess of the d'Ubervilles, stars [[Performer~P598774~Freida Pinto~freidapinto]] as the title character, a young Indian woman who meets Jay ([[Performer~P716141~Riz Ahmed~rizahmed]]), the son of a rich real-estate man. He convinces her to come work in a hotel owned by his father, and because her family is in desperate need of money -- and he's charming and handsome -- she accepts. While things go well at first, she becomes pregnant and is forced to leave the job. Although Trishna tries to make it on her own as a dancer, Jay eventually returns and attempts to sweep her off her feet again. Trishna played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
