We went to the screening of the emotionally stirring new film by Monsoon Wedding Mira Nair. Mire has moved on from the fun and frenzy of the film that made her famous to paint a more intimate portrait of Diaspora and the the changes and challenges an immigrant Banledeshi couple face when they move from Calcutta to New Jersey.

We went to the screening of the emotionally stirring new film by Monsoon Wedding Mira Nair. Mire has moved on from the fun and frenzy of the film that made her famous to paint a more intimate portrait of Diaspora and the the changes and challenges an immigrant Bengali couple face when they move from Calcutta to New Jersey. The Namesake is a fine adaptation of the novel by Pulitzer prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri and Nair explained at the Q&A after the screening that the way the movie looks was inspired by a number of photos currently on show at Sepia Gallery NYC. Very beautiful and moving.
