Event Details

With perhaps her most personal film yet, Nair returns with a cross-generational, trans-continental, culture clash family drama based on Jumpha Lahiri’s best-selling novel.

Following their arranged marriage, Ashoke (Khan) and Ashima (Tabu) leave Calcutta for a new life in New York City. They find it difficult to adjust to the cold climate and strange ways. But when their son (Penn) is born, he embraces American culture, turning his back on his parents’ Bengali traditions. Can the gap be bridged? Includes a soundtrack by Nitin Sawhney.
