Like much of the Bollywood fanbase I'm a bit put off by Freida Pinto's condescending attitude towards Indian cinema. BUT...I'm not swearing her off entirely. She hasn't done anything to impress me yet, acting-wise, but I'm hoping that will change when Trishna premieres at TIFF this fall. Pinto stars as the daughter of a rickshaw driver in an adaptation of Tess of the D'Ubervilles directed by Michael Winterbottom and scored by Amit Trivedi. The trailer released this morning and it looks promising to say the least.
Thoughts on the film? Anyone planning on seeing it when it comes out?
