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.
