A first look at Riz Ahmed and Kate Hudson in Mira Nair's upcoming adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist. The film also stars Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schrieber, Shabana Azmi, and Om Puri.
Monsoon Wedding is one of my favorite movies, so I was glad to hear that Nair would be directing the film. I think the source material will translate well to the screen, and it will be interesting to see how the adaptation translates the novel’s unique narrative voice. A major release like this could foster some important dialogue about Islamophobia in the United States, especially considering the novel’s incredibly complex protagonist. Let’s just hope we don’t see an All-American Muslim-style controversy when the film is released.
