  • Michael Winterbottom's TRISHNA, a modern retelling of Thomas Hardy's TESS OF THE D'UBERVILLES, stars Freida Pinto as the title character, a young Indian woman who meets Jay (Riz Ahmed), 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "TRISHNA relocates TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES to the subcontinent in a bold modernisation that still hews pretty close to the original's tragic text....This is a vivid, beautifully shot extrapolation of the book's timeless themes..."
