The Reluctant Fundamentalist

"You picked a side after 9/11… I didn't have to." Damn, this looks really good. IFC Films has unveiled their theatrical trailer for The Reluctant Fundamentalist, directed by award-winning filmmaker Mira Nair, starring a cast including Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber and Martin Donovan. But front and center is actor Riz Ahmed, playing Changez, a young Pakistani man living in New York who becomes an outcast after 9/11 because of his nationality. It's a story we've seen, but told in a compelling way, with what looks to be a powerful but restrained lead performance. I'm looking forward to seeing this.

Watch the theatrical trailer for Mira Nair's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, originally from Yahoo:

A young Pakistani man (Ahmed) is chasing corporate success on Wall Street. He finds himself embroiled in a conflict between his American Dream, a hostage crisis, and the enduring call of his family's homeland.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist was directed by world-renowned Indian filmmaker Mira Nair, of the films Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala, Monsoon Wedding, Vanity Fair, The Namesake, Migration… and Amelia previously. The screenplay was written by William Wheeler (The Prime Gig, The Hoax), based on Mohsin Hamid's novel, from a screen story by Hamid & Ami Boghani. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and is being released by IFC Films in theaters starting April 26th later this year. Interested?
