The Reluctant Fundamentalist

UK Release Date: 10th May 2013
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director/Producer: Mira Nair
Writers:William Wheeler, Mohsin Hamid, Amy Boghani
Starring:Riz Ahmed, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland

Director Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay; Monsoon Wedding) delivers an intense adaption of Moshin Hamid’s bestseller. It tells of Changez, an ambitious young man whose identity pivots between a glittering stockbroker career in the Big Apple and his home culture thousands of miles away in Lahore, Pakistan.

Aggressive young gun Changez sums up everything his poet father detests about the West, as he lands a prize job at a firm specialising in the ruthless takeovers of ailing companies. Changez soon catches the eye of troubled trophy WASP princess Erica, who is intrigued by this ‘exotic’ man. Then, out of the blue, the World Trade Centre is destroyed, and suddenly Changez’s Pakistani background and face suddenly don’t fit.

Being strip-searched at US Customs is the first of his humiliations; and disenchantment with his new home, which forces Changez to reconsider who he is, draws him back to Pakistan and headlong into the unfolding conflict between the US military and Pakistani extremists. Nair astutely treads the delicate faultlines between Western and Islamic worlds, supported by an impressive cast led by Riz Ahmed, with Kiefer Sutherland, Kate Hudson and Shabana Azmi.

Reviews

"This is bold and muscular storytelling with a plausible performance from Riz Ahmed in the lead role."The Guardian

"Nair directs with the same freewheeling energy she brought to her 2001 Venice Golden Lion winner Monsoon Wedding. This is a well-crafted and thoughtful thriller that looks at familiar subject matter from a new angle."The Independent

"A film that tackles important issues without taking sides and which tries to balance intelligent drama with a dash of political action."Screen Daily
