Formal Audrey covergirl Frieda Pinto is starring in a new movie, Trishna, opening in select US theaters on July 13th. The film, directed by Michael Winterbottom and co-starring Riz Ahmed, is a profound commentary on the tension between the old and new generations in India based on the classic novel, Tess of the D’Urbervilles. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and Tribes Film Festival with high hopes.
Trishna is a story of a peasant woman who falls in love with a handsome and wealthy young man. However, this is not the typical Cinderella story, as Trishna faces many obstacles. Her world is changing at an incredible pace and culture clashes arise, and she is forced to choose between her familiar past and exciting future.
