Trailer: The Reluctant Fundamentalist



22 February 2013 12:49

The performances and visuals look promising, but my, don't they lay on the political symbolism with a trowel. The quote near the end ('Yes, I'm a Pakistani, yes I'm a Muslim, but that's not all I am') is particularly unsubtle (and does any real human being actually say 'You're gonna get us both killed', or is it a pure cinematic cliché like 'secure the perimeter' and 'I'm getting too old for this sh*t'?).

The Reluctant Fundamentalist opens in Australia in June.
