If there’s one film to stop scrolling for, it’s The White Tiger, the brand-new Oscar contender based on the 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name by Aravind Adiga. The drama follows Balram Halwai and his epic journey from serving wealthy employers (Priyanka Chopra Jonas, pictured, and Rajkummar Rao) to becoming a successful entrepreneur in India. But it’s not all smiles and success – the powerful drama packs in laughs side-by-side with challenging questions. Tweeting about the film, Chopra Jonas said, “It will make you uncomfortable, and most importantly it will entertain you.” Sign us up.
Out on Netflix, 22nd January
