First Look: The Reluctant Fundamentalist Movie Poster


Truth be told, this dramatic film wasn’t on my radar until receiving this poster to post. Coming to theaters on April 26, 2013, The Reluctant Fundamentalist was directed by Mira Nair and stars Liev Schrieber, Riz Ahmed, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kate Hudson.
The Plot:
In 2010, as student demonstrations rage in Lahore, a young Pakistani professor Changez Khan (Ahmed) is interviewed by American journalist Bobby Lincoln (Schreiber). Princeton-educated Changez tells Lincoln of his past as a brilliant business analyst on Wall Street. He talks of the glittering future that lay before him, his mentor, Jim Cross (Sutherland), and the beautiful and sophisticated Erica (Hudson), with whom he was set to share that future.
In the aftermath of 9/11, the alienation and suspicion he is suddenly met with leads him back to his homeland, and the family to whom he is very close. Charisma and intelligence catapult him to become a leader both in the eyes of the Pakistani students that adore him, and the American government that suspects him.
The collegial pretense of the meeting in a Lahore tea house, between Lincoln and Changez, slowly gives way to why the unlikely pair is meeting on a summer day—a foreign professor has been kidnapped by extremists, and the clock is ticking toward the deadline for his execution. Changez’s family is being harassed and is in real danger. Bobby listens carefully, but with an agenda of his own.
