    Inline Image
    For the weekend, we leave you with news of a Michael Winterbottom film, out on Blu-ray and DVD on 9th July courtesy of Artificial Eye. Starring Freida Pinto of Slumdog Millionaire fame, along with Riz Ahmed from Four Lions, Trishna is based on the classic Thomas Hardy novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles.

    A tale of love and tragedy, this has been transported to modern day rural Rajasthan and the thriving metropolis of Mumbai. With a runtime of 98 minutes, and extras to be confirmed, which probably means a trailer and possibly a featurette, no RRP to tell you about, but the street prices should be around £8 for the DVD and £12 for the Blu-ray.

    Synopsis is as follows...

    Trishna (Freida Pinto) meets a wealthy young British businessman, Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed), who has come to India to work in his father's hotel business. After an accident destroys her father's Jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, their relationship must remain a secret due to the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education.

    Their problems seem to be solved when Jay takes Trishna to an exciting new world of dance, vibrant life and possibilities - Mumbai. But Trishna harbours a dark secret that threatens the very heart of their love affair, and inequalities remain at the centre of their relationship that will lead her to question Jay's intentions towards her.
