The Reluctant Fundamentalist -Cinema 10


By Craig Thornton



A Pakistani man, Changez (Riz Ahmed), has traveled a long way toward achieving his version of the American Dream with a budding career on Wall Street, an American girlfriend, and many of the trappings of success. When the Twin Towers are attacked, everything changes for him. Tom Huddleston, writing for Time Out, says this thriller by Mira Nair (Mississippi Masala, Monsoon Wedding, The Namesake) offers much to enjoy: “fine photography, juicy supporting turns from Keifer Sutherland and Om Puri, and a powerfully sustained sense of a man adrift in a world going mad.” 

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is 130 minutes long and is in English and subtitled Urdu. This movie is rated R for language, some violence, and brief sexuality.
