EXCELLENT FILM ABOUT THE RADICALIZATION OF A PAKISTANI LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM AFTER 9/11!
Based on the 2007 novel by Moshin Hamid, directed by Mira Nair, far exceeded the limited and problematic boundaries of the book; blatant honesty informs intelligent characters: flawed, wounded, irrevocably altered by heinous, untoward circumstances; Ms. Nair and fine acting gift viewers a raw, realistic, radical story of metamorphosis, indoctrination, transformation from the benign to ?the reluctant fundamentalist? ...
?The Reluctant Fundamentalist? raises a myriad of questions; minimal proselytization; at its core is the quest to discover one?s true identity, acknowledge imperfections and ultimately in the words of Polonius ?to thine own self, be true?...
Mira Nair?s film should be seen by all in these troubled times...
