Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Ambiguity is at the heart of the novel, but Nair is never quite sure what to do with it. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, May 10, 2013

Fresh: This sure-handed adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's international best seller shows Nair at her best. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, May 3, 2013

Rotten: As a culture-clash story the film works well enough, but as a character study it's a bit of a scramble. – Tom Long, Detroit News, May 10, 2013

Fresh: Nair has found a real gem in Riz Ahmed, who anchors the film with a charismatically watchable performance. He's in virtually every frame and you hang on his every word. – Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, May 16, 2013

Loved the book, loved the movie even more

Good cast, great direction.

So beautiful it hurts

Just watched it for the second time on iTunes - first time was on a big screen at the cinema. It's beautiful like a blow to the head that bursts in mini glitter explosions. The colours. The truths. I understand why the average american would not be able to appreciate it, though. It must be hard to see your preconceptions being shattered by such beauty and depth. Still, a must see. So beautiful it hurts.
