Part of A Novel Idea, this month on Curzon12.
Michael Winterbottom, director of the upcoming 'Greed' starring Steve Coogan, adapts Thomas Hardy for the third time for this bold and visually striking take on 'Tess of the d'Ubervilles' updated to modern day India.
'Trishna' makes the most of its stunning backdrop with Freida Pinto as the film's eponymous and ill-fated heroine. No less impressive, as Trishna's tortuous lover, is Riz Ahmed, proving once again to be an exciting presence in contemporary British film.
