From Award-winning director Mira Nair, and based on the acclaimed novel by Mohsin Hamid, comes the explosive new film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. In 2010, as student demonstrations rage in Lahore, a young Pakistani professor Changez Khan (Riz Ahmed) is interviewed by American journalist Bobby Lincoln (Liev Schreiber). Princeton-educated Changez tells Lincoln of his past as a brilliant business analyst on Wall Street. He talks of the glittering future that lay before him, his mentor, Jim Cross (Kiefer Sutherland), and the beautiful and sophisticated Erica (Kate Hudson), with whom he was set to share that future.

In the aftermath of 9/11, the alienation and suspicion he is suddenly met with leads him back to his homeland, and the family to whom he is very close. Charisma and intelligence catapult him to become a leader both in the eyes of the Pakistani students that adore him, and the American government that suspects him.

The collegial pretense of the meeting in a Lahore tea house, between Lincoln and Changez, slowly gives way to why the unlikely pair is meeting on a summer day—a foreign professor has been kidnapped by extremists, and the clock is ticking toward the deadline for his execution. Changez’s family is being harassed and is in real danger. Bobby listens carefully, but with an agenda of his own. Leading us through the culturally rich and beguiling worlds of New York, Lahore and Istanbul, The Reluctant Fundamentalist is an exploration of bias and the phenomenon of globalization that is both brilliant and unsettling.

The combination of Shirley’s five rambunctious daughters and her philandering husband Barry becomes too much for her to bear and she is committed to a mental institution.

Barry, a small time politician is left to take care of five girls who he barely knows. Overwhelmed, he impulsively picks up Shaz, a colorful hitchhiker on the side of the road, and installs her as the girls’ nanny. Shaz is charismatic, hot tempered, inspiring, and completely nuts. However she proves to be exactly what the Moochmore family needs.

Tropfest Film Festival Comes to US

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival, today announced the 16 films that will vie for the top prize in its inaugural “All-Star Competition,” to be hosted by Rob Corddry (The Daily Show, Hot Tub Time Machine, Childrens Hospital), during a weekend of free, mostly outdoor events being held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas June 1-3 in celebration of Tropfest’s 20th Official Birthday. The 16 finalists have been culled from the best Tropfest entries of the past two decades. A celebrity and industry panel will select an overall winner live before thousands of festival-goers at the ’main event’ on Sunday, June 3 (A full list of finalists follows).

The films, each less than seven minutes, have been hand-picked by Tropfest founder and acclaimed director John Polson (Hide & Seek, Tenderness) and represent a wide cross section of work whose principals have gone on to great success in front of and behind the camera. Over the past two decades, dozens of successful directors, writers, actors and others have had their start at Tropfest. Festival alumni include: Sam Worthington (Avatar, Last Night); Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Warrior, Animal Kingdom); Alister Grierson (director of the James Cameron-produced Sanctum); and Jason Gann and Tony Rogers, whose Tropfest short, Wilfred, was the genesis of the popular U.S. TV series of the same name starring Elijah Wood.

“I’m very excited about this,” said Corddry. “Tropfest is a perfect match for me. I don’t have the attention span for a full-length film festival.”

For its United States debut in Las Vegas and New York, Tropfest has amassed U.S. Ambassadors including Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anthony Lapaglia, Liev Schreiber and Charles Randolph. The event has traditionally received extraordinary support globally from some of the biggest stars in the international film community, including the most recent iteration of Tropfest Australia where the panel of judges and guests included Kidman, Rush, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Baz Luhrmann and Tobey Maguire.

“For the past 20 years, Tropfest has uncovered some exceptional talent in all aspects of filmmaking, and it was no easy feat to narrow down the All-Star nominees to just sixteen,” said Polson. “I’ve been amazed and delighted watching Tropfest’s audience grow over these two decades and I’m extremely proud to present them to a U.S. audience.”

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the city’s newest luxury resort, will host the first event in the festival’s U.S. debut, Tropfest Las Vegas, starting with a Welcome Party on Friday, June 1, Tropfest’s 20th Birthday Party on Saturday, June 2 and the All-Star Competition on Sunday, June 3.

The weekend’s activities will feature curated short film content, the All-Star Competition and live musical performances from some of the industry’s most exciting new acts. Delta Spirit, who are set to play Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza in coming months, will perform live on Saturday, June 2 at Tropfest’s 20th Birthday Party and singer-songwriter-artist, LP, will close out the All-Star Competition on Sunday, June 3 at the Boulevard Pool. In keeping with Tropfest’s culture globally, the vast majority of access to all events will be FREE.
