The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Now Showing

Set in the years following 9/11, The Reluctant Fundamentalist follows a young Pakistani man, Changez, chasing corporate success on Wall Street. Living in the suspicious, terrorism-altered Western world, he ultimately finds himself embroiled in a conflict between his American Dream, a hostage crisis, and the enduring call of his family's homeland.

In the vein of The Constant Gardener and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy the film is an electrifying thriller based on the Booker Prize-shortlisted novel by Mohsin Hamid, rated one of the books to define the decade by The Guardian and reached # 4 on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, The Namesake, Vanity Fair), it features a powerful cast including Kate Hudson, Riz Ahmed, Kiefer Sutherland and Liev Schreiber.
