The Reluctant Fundamentalist
The Reluctant Fundamentalist. This dramatic thriller centres on a young Pakistani chasing success on Wall Street. His destiny is altered by September 11 and the new world of xenophobia it ushers in. Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber and Kate Hudson lead the Western side of the cast. They say: A decidedly mixed bag of reviews – with few critics able to agree on the varying merits of the film’s thriller plot, political stance or cultural accuracy. Directed by Mira Nair ( Monsoon Wedding, Amelia). Wesay: An unconventional – and not altogether successful – thriller that benefits from a beautifully textured depiction of life on Manhattan and in the Middle East. Running time 128 minutes. Screens at The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
