The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Friday, April 26 - Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Boldly adapting an international bestseller, acclaimed director Nair (Salaam Bombay, Monsoon Wedding and The Namesake) crafts a provocative thriller—the story of a young Pakistani émigré (Riz Ahmed/The Road to Guantanamo, Four Lions, Trishna) whose pursuit of the American Dream seems nearly complete. But Ivy-League success and Wall Street triumph evaporate when the events of 9/11 turn his world upside down. Treated like an outcast in his adoptive country, he finds the lure of his homeland harder to resist. With Kiefer Sutherland, Kate Hudson, Liev Schreiber, Om Puri.
