The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Based on the international bestseller, "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" is both a gripping thriller and a fascinating look at the post-9/11 world. When an American academic in Pakistan is kidnapped by anti-American radicals, the CIA thinks popular young Pakistani professor Changez (Riz Ahmed) is involved. But as Changez tells his remarkable story about his life in the US - including his rising career on Wall Street and passionate relationship with a beautiful New York artist (Kate Hudson) - to an American foreign correspondent (Liev Schreiber), the truth becomes harder to pin down. Acclaimed director Mira Nair's ("Monsoon Wedding") adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's novel is a tense tale of hidden agendas and best intentions gone wrong. With Kiefer Sutherland, Om Puri.
