I enjoyed the book a lot more. Thought this was too slow moving and did not like the ending.
A sweet nuanced story.
This is an Indo-American family saga, beautifully shot and extremely well acted. Anyone who has been caught in a generation gap, and/or a cultural gap will smile in recognition at the bored teenagers, puzzled & shy newlyweds, and the aging "aunties." Just a lovely film, celebrating the simple but precious moments of family life.
A lovely adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri's wonderful book of the same name. It's the story of an immigrant family's coming to, and growing up, in America. Although this family is East Indian, it is a story for all immigrants and their descendants.
please take the time to see this movie...beautiful...the relationship between the family is touching and strong...
I found the ceremonies of the Indian culture very comforting to the soul. I think this story was true to life.
I thought that this movie was very good. Being White I enjoy learning about different cultures and this movie give me some more insight into how it must be for some immigrants to come to Canada and live and accept our traditions without completely giving up their own.
The culture difference seems huge to me, with no experience other than very casual, I struggle with understanding much of the Eastern concepts. This is rather slow & likely necessary to fully develop the characters & histories. I enjoyed it & will ponder various aspects for some time. The US girlfriend is shallow, self-centered & status driven, however the Indian one doesn't prove well developed either. I liked the closure for their lives. The spoken words were difficult for me to understand - wish I'd used subtitles.
As always, the book is much better, but the movie is not bad either. Excellent insight into the indian community, I guess, not being one myself.
