The first trailer Mira Nair's THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST starring Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, and Riz Ahmed, has just released. Check it out, via Yahoo! Movies, below!
Based on the best-selling novel of the same title by Mohsin Hamid, THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST tells the story of a young Pakistani man (Ahmed) whose pursuit of corporate success on Wall Street leads him on a strange path back to the world he had left behind. Toronto festival programmers wrote: "a boldly dramatic adaptation of a remarkable, timely novel, Mira Nair's THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST promises to be one of the most talked about films of the year. Mixing romance and tragedy with the classic arc of ambition thwarted, Nair brings Mohsin Hamid's award-winning 2007 book to the screen with both passion and insight. She also delivers a cracking thriller."
The Reluctant Fundamentalist made its world premiere at Opening Night of the Venice Film Festival before its NorthAmerican premiere in Toronto. It was adapted by Bill Wheeler, with the Screen Story by Mohsin Hamid and Ami Boghani. Produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher under her Cine Mosaic banner, this is the latest Doha Film Institute financed film and is a Mirabai Films and Cine Mosaic production.
The film is set for a limited release on April 26.
