A New Mira Nair Film
Posted: 06 Mar 2007 06:49 AM
Mira Nair has released her new film called "The Namesake". It is taken from the Jhumpa Lahiri's novel. It seems to have vast acclaim and I thought I would post a link to the film's site here:

The film has to do with two generations of an Indian family coing to the US and trying to balance their lives, customs and east/west cultural issues. It looks interesting and I look forward to seeing it.

Ooo! I have this book, but haven't read it yet. I'll have to read it before I see the movie though.

I love Lahiri as a writer though. I've read her "Interpreter of Maladies" book, which is basically a collection of short stories. If the movie stays true to "The Namesake", it should be excellent since Lahiri, in my opinion, does a fabulous job of character development. I honestly think about some of her characters from IoM and wonder what they are doing. ;)

I enjoy Nair's films so i am looking forward. Most probably my hubby will consider this a "chick flick" (no shooting, car chases or karate chops) so my daughter and I will enjoy an evening out!
