IFC Films has released a trailer for director Mira Nair's political drama The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012), starring Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, and Riz Ahmed. The film is set to appear in theaters across the United States on April 26th.
Synopsis: Changez, a Princeton graduate from Pakistan, succeeds on Wall Street, thriving in his adopted city. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned and his relationships tested. His involvement with pro-Pakistan demonstrations are called into question as is his connection to a possibly extremist student. After another attack, Changez's link to the student implicates him indirectly to the group responsible. A thriller unfolds as Changez is forced to choose - a country, a way of life, where he belongs.
Note: In 2001, director Nair won Golden Lion Award for Best Film and Laterna Magica Prize with Monsoon Wedding at the Venice Film Festival. The film is currently available on Blu-ray via the Criterion Collection. See our listing here.
