DirectorMichael Winterbottom
CastRiz Ahmed, Freida Pinto
Self-effacing British auteur Michael Winterbottom sets his unique spin on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles against a contemporary Indian backdrop. Freida Pinto stars as the titular Trishna, a young woman who is seduced by the wealthy son of a property developer. As the romance develops, their relationship also becomes increasingly sordid and volatile.
Starring Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Riz Ahmed (Centurion) and based on Thomas Hardy’s novel Tess of the d’Urbervilles, the film is set in contemporary India and tells the tragic love story between the son of a wealthy property developer and the daughter of a rickshaw driver.
The film is a contemporary adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s classic Tess Of The d’Urbervilles, now relocated to India. Tess was previously brought to the big screen by Roman Polanski in 1979.
