“A sweetly pungent comedy”
—The New York Times
“It takes love to bring all these elements together into harmony, and [Mira] Nair makes it look easy even when it’s most difficult for her characters.”
—The Austin Chronicle
Mira Nair’s film about a love affair between a young woman of Indian-Ugandan descent (Sarita Choudhury) and a black Southerner (Denzel Washington) introduced some vital conversations about culture into the cinematic dialogue. A vivid and moving film. 30th Anniversary.
